Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
The first inspiration for my level was the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone game. When I saw the trees provided for my level, I instantly thought of this game. There are a number of levels based in the Forbidden Forest where there is a pathway through the trees, the player must follow this to proceed to the next area.
I decided to include this in my design as it allows for progression and creates an order and flow to the level. By using a pathway, similar to the one in Harry Potter, I can direct the player through the level, preventing them from attempting to complete quests in the wrong order.
