Failure Analysis Paper

kerbal_space_program___fan_cover_by_syrsa-d4khini

Format: Double spaced, 12-point font

Think about the prototypes that you have made so far this semester. Pick the one that you think is the worst and write a 1000 word paper discussing why you consider it a failure.

In your paper be sure to address three things you think are good about your prototype and three that you think are bad.

Discuss why you think it is the worst and what you would change about the prototype to make it a better game.

At no point in your paper may you complain about the amount of time you had. Failure to heed this warning will result in a grade of “0” on the paper.

You may not write about a game you didn’t turn in.
