Design an Engaging Gaming Experience on a Mobile Platform for Indian Female Audience
The global gaming landscape has drastically evolved from a male dominant zone to a gender-neutral one. Games now provide a fair entertainment platform across all genders, wherein different game genres are coming up with a gender-neutral approach. As for the mobile gaming industry, games designed for females are stereotyped with themes related to love stories, dress up games & cooking games. It’s important to consider female choices in games beyond these typical assumptions and try to achieve the desired output through mobile games. This project focuses on young Indian females from the age group 21-30 years as the primary target audience and designing a game around their gaming preferences. The student designed an adventure game of a young woman blessed with celestial power that unfolds from one world to another with interesting puzzles & mini-games along the way. The story revolves around the female protagonist - Maya, and her quest to find the five classic elemental stones in nature.
