Coffee Break Hero – a 14 day sprint

I really like this live little initiative to raise money for Child’s Play Charity, an online based organisation raising money through an ever growing community of online gamers.

Big Block Games have challenged themselves to create an RPG in just 14 days. You can watch their progress live as they design and develop the game from scratch.

Over the next 14 days, from September 1st to September 14th, we’ll be building a complete RPG, live with video and blog updates. Our internal documents will all be live on Google Docs.

We’ve done preproduction on the concept, including concept art, and a prototype, and design work. However, not a line of code has been written for the final project, and not a pixel drawn.

The prototype in all its glory:

Concept art for the game:
