Don't turn your back, or you may find your heart turned to stone -- and in Petrified, if you want to survive until dawn, you'll need to keep a keen eye on the waiting statues, lest they add your soul to their ranks.This project took a game from design through inception. The game, titled Petrified, is a team-based multiplayer game, with a heavy emphasis on an unsettling atmosphere and challenging, engaging play for players on both teams. The project's timeline was split into three phases: design, implementation, and evaluation. By using iterative development techniques throughout these phases, the team produced a fully functional, playable, and fun game, which they released to the online public at the conclusion of the development period.
