I would like to present you my first prototype of the puzzle game. Pinkman's Lab is a compilation of ideas from old school disney cartoons and modern tv series. Nevertheless, in the prototype of my game I am trying to create an exciting gameplay and design nice features.

I think it could be interesting to know how we came up to all this stuff. As I said before this is my first prototype of this kind of games. I am graphic designer and I knew about gamedev not so much. But I got a task to create a concept of the game for tablets and I made some research how can I do it without programming. Here we go :)

I guess one of the reason why I choosed this topic for the game because I graduated medical school, my sister and my wife are biologists :) I wanted to make interesting science fiction game with nice gameplay, graphic and music.
Firstly, I played a lot different games on iPod, iPad and Samsung, watched walkthrough the games on Youtube and so on.

Secondly, I made some sketches of characters and drew primitive level design on the paper.

Thirdly, I tried to create simple prototype directly in Construct 2 just to be sure that it works at all. I checked many tutorials and read manual on the Scirra web site. Thank you guys for all this stuff! ;)

Forth, I created graphics, animations, user interface elements and so on. After that many rows of actions were added to event sheets.

Of couse between all these steps I had a lot of troubles and sleepless nights but finally something came out :)
What am I going to do next time? Add nice music and sounds, create new levels, fix bugs and have much fun!
