Another huge inspiration for our game was the card game, Top Trumps. This is an extremely simple game in which players split a set of cards and compare stats on them. Whoever has the higher number for a chosen stat wins and takes their opponent’s card. Whoever has the most cards at the end wins.
We really liked this idea for use in our Skyrim game and we decided that a combat element based on stats would tie in nicely with the perk system found in the original Skyrim game. We selected 6 perks from Skyrim to use as comparable stats and from there we created an idea based on factions within the game that we would later use as each player’s identity in the game.
