What is “The Fall” ?
The Fall is a simple strategy game made in ~6 days for “Historically Accurate Game Jam”.
You play as the emperor during the fall of the Roman Empire, and you have to rule over 4 aspects : Military, Economic, Religion and Social. Each turn, you select a theme, and you have to make a choice. Make good decisions, and try to survive until 476 to be victorious. If one of the 4 aspects reaches 0, you lose.
How the game works ?
On each round the player needs to choose a card with a theme, this theme card is going to influence the choosen gauge as well as an unknow one.
The gauges change after the player’s decision.
Some cards will have more impact on a theme than others.
The player needs to survive around 50 years (50 rounds).
What was my job there ?
I mainly worked on writing and balancing cards. I used a simple mindmap software to have a diagram on the card balancing system.
I also wrote all cards by simply using a google doc, and shared it with my teammate (the developer).
