Description

Our senior design project, titled “ In a Lonely Place ”, is a game. It was programmed in C# and developed using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express as well as Microsoft XNA Game Studio. “In a Lonely Place” was inspired by Daniel Benmergui’s web game “Today I Die”. Like “Today I Die”, our game uses a short poem to give context to what the player is doing. Words are hidden throughout the game, and can be swapped with wor ds in the poem. Changes to the poem are reflected in the game world. Our hope is that the poem and the actions taken by the player will reinforce each other, conveying more meaning than either individually.
