Looking back to the start of this class, I remember feeling overwhelmed, scared, and unsure about all the ‘missions’ we were going to complete in this class.
However, looking at where I am now versus the first week of school, I can’t help but feel proud of how I have handled week after week and turning what I thought would be Mission Impossible into Mission Possible.
We’ve explored the secret agent genre through audio, photography, design and now video. When we think of secret agents and storytelling, we often think of secret agent tv shows and movies…but what about video games?
Now before you read any further, you should know that I know absolutely nothing about video games. Usually, I would never suggest undergoing a mission where I don’t know anything, but first of all that’s actually the liter definition of a mission and second of all, this course has been about learning experiences and this would be a big one for me.
When I was thinking of a possible mission our class could partake on, I thought back to a class I took last semester where we were supposed to make a project of some sort using some form of digital work. A lot of my classmates actually made their own game for their project using a site like Wix, and I couldn’t help but think how this would be an awesome project for our class. Each of us could come up with an idea that involved our own characters and make an online game in which players are presented with a series of choices, and their choices depict the next stage of the game.
While I know this description doesn’t go into too much detail, I think the idea of making a game incorporating the secret agent genre and our characters could be a lot of fun and a great way to further expand our storytelling knowledge of the secret agent theme!
