PostSubject: Acreage a Slenderman Boardgame   Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:39 pm

So in my digital design class we are making board games, my group decided we wanted ours to be unique and acquire some thinking. After a few decisions and disagreements I mentioned, "Hey, why don't we make a board game based on Slenderman?" My group was a little confused and one obviously said, "Well, how are we going to do that?" I reminded them about the viral game Slender and I said we should loosely base are style on the antics of that game. After some harsh rule development and sketches we finally have our rough draft of our pieces, board, rules, and etc.










In a short run, You have to go around the different areas (Abandoned House, Grave yard, Junkyard and guest house) to find car parts to be able to start the broken down car in the junk yard to escape the estate.The Slenderman piece is controlled/moved by the cards with the operator symbol. They will say for example: "Move Slenderman 4 Paces north 5 paces east" believe it or not, he will seem to follow a player in the game, its very creepy and has you freaking out. You cannot be within one or two spaces of Slenderman (if you are you will lose a turn and be brought back to start while loosing all your car parts). The cards with the target on the head are the player cards that have like witty scenarios like you fell, loose a turn, etc. They also indicate or not if you receive a car part.

It's really fun so fun so far and we cannot wait for the final product! I hope you guys enjoy what we have too plus critiques would help as well!

Artwork, such as: The Character Game pieces, Logo, and Player cards (except for the operator one Tabitha did that one) and special places on the game board are done by me
Tabitha did the board such as the eerie grass part on placing it all together as well as rules and card options.
Dallas did the junkyard and the car and is working on the box art.

I'd suggest a proxy sort of thing, I suppose where one player is a proxy and tries to hinder the progress of the others without letting on to that fact.
All the cool kids are doing it.

I would buy this so much. I would buy 8 of it just to say that I owned it. Then I would buy a 9th one to play it with my friends.

I want this to be awesome so much. I wish I had thought of it myself (we had a similar assignment in my game design class). that would have been AWESOME to show our teacher. you'll have rules and stuff ready at some point, right?

Yes, Tabitha is currently revising the rules. After are beta test on Friday and today we realized that we need to make Slendy move more than he should as well as minus penalties so that the game is possible to beat (it was really tough with our rough draft).

When its all finished, I am gonna post all the images here.
Those shapie marker marking you see on their are places on the board and things we need to put on the final product, those allow Slendy to move more and have the game be more dramatic. This is a really fun game and we are really ahead! If we keep working like we do we might have it done by the end of the month or sooner.

EDIT: Oh plus right after the finished product is graded our next job is to create it into a web app. Which means yes you will be able to play it in digital format with with all your friends (4 player max)

Flush, this looks like a decent, well thought out game. It also looks fun and it would be pretty popular. May I suggest a kickstarter?

Oh ho ho ho, wow really? You guy's think it would be that popular even for a kickstarter? Geez where just Seniors in Highschool in a Design lab. I mean I pretty sure my teacher and group will really like this. I'll show this to them Tuesday (tomorrow) and see what they thank.

haha wow thanks!

This sort of reminds me of the doll house in CaughtNotSleeping.

I live the idea though, A++, would buy.

Also, I really like the player/slendy pieces. I really want this to be a thing.

So, if you decide to give the characters names, you can not name one of them Alex. This is imperative.
Or perhaps you can do it as an homage to the Slenderverse. And to see who understands it.

Actually the characters are the people in our group! We put ourselves into the game. A girl in the lab volunteered to be the 2nd female character

looks really cool. maybe what you could also do, is have different objectives for different lengths and styles of games. like there could be assemble the car, collect 8 pages, find the proxy, catch slender man, and more!

The game is a chore to finish, we're trying to make it a bit easier to complete (but, not to easy of course). Our instructor doesn't want us to make a long game since, well y'know people will loose interest. Plus our rules are in final right now for our production. Maybe if we get the game a Kickstarter we may be able to rearrange somethings.

Plus with this just being a boardgame it would be really hard to implement such action.

I'm actually really excited about this. Let me know if you ever do start a kickstarter and I'll make sure the entire Irish gaming community hears about it.

Hey man, I agree it looks like you've got a great game going there. I'm an aspiring game designer myself and it's always encouraging to see someone else going for it. Good luck!

I actually came to this forum looking to learn more about the Slender Man for a game idea I have. But I need to do a lot of reading and learn a lot more before I bog everyone down with my stuff.

Still, keep it up! Best of luck with the game!

Rob

Tomorrow we will have the finished print and game all together! I'll be posting pictures of the final product hopefully by tomorrow!

And my instructor has yet to ask her boss about the kickstarter! Hopefully she will say yes!

Ok so we DO have the whole game printed out, it looks good and we are ready to mat it and everything. However, we do have have adhesive! So we cannot mat the board today. The Juniors used it all up on accident Dx

We will mat by Monday (hopefully) and get you guys the pictures! I'm so sorry that this is taking longer than usual!

Along with al that, could you please, PLEASE (!) give us the rules as a download link or something, and a scan of the board? I REALLY want to try this out as soon as possible. Your game has given me some faith in the Slenderverse again, and I have plenty of friends who would love to play this (in addition, I have a local game store that has tables for free gaming in the back, an excellent resource to try your game). If this thing gets off the ground more than it has already, and I can actually test it out, I will be sure to tell you what people thought of it (and any rule changes that we think would be good, if you're up for that). but seriously, I want this to succeed so much ( i would kickstart this, but I am a stereotypically broke teenager, so the least I can do wold be play the thing and get the word out!
