Kill Thy Neighbor
(For the thesis class of 2015, led by Frank Lantz, Matt Parker, Charles Pratt, Bennett Foddy)
Badblood is a deadly game of hide & seek. It is a local split-screen one-on-one brawler of the brain, not brawn — a hybrid of chess and street fighter. As one of the vengeful characters on a personal manhunt, you must use stealth, environment manipulation, and risk assessment to find and kill your opponent before they find you.
This year-long thesis project explores an interaction between two players that allow them to be intimately competitive with each other in stealth and manipulation.
