This is a High Concept Documentation for one of the ideas
Name: Climby Cat
Target audience: Everyone
You’re a cat climbing a cliff, the goal is to get the highest score, each finger pocket or crack you climb gives you a point.
The controls similar to piano tiles where they have to touch the screen very quickly to ascend but the player has to touch the left or right side of the screen (or use arrow keys) to ascend, the player can ascend if they climb on a finger pocket or an edge, if the player climbed on something like a hole in wall or uneven surface, the cat will fall which results in a game over. The cat can also fall if the payer stops for a few seconds.
This game takes place on multiple maps randomly selected when the game game starts or the player presses the reset button.
The cat would be climbing:
A tall tree
Moodboard for settings
Setting a record and trying to beat it.
Very fast paced, gives the player that adrenaline rush.
Addicting gameplay making the player want to come back to the game
Competitivity, the players can best their friends highscore
Key Gameplay Mechanics
Tap either the left or the right side of the screen to climb either the left or right side of the cliff.
Getting the high score and beating other players high scores.

Next thing i’m going to do is continue with the High concept documentation by adding things like
- How the game will teach the player how to play
- How do the coins the work
- How can the player lose
- What happens when you lose
