Poor little Paws. He overheard some humans talking about all the things they stress about and now he’s got all these crazy ideas about stress and relaxing stuck in his head! No wonder his stress levels are all over the place. Help Paws on his journey. Remove the ideas of stress and relaxing from his head. Ensure that he doesn’t panic! Calm him down and help him breathe!
Paws, my new game is starting to come together. I created a few mockups to help flesh out some details and how things may work together. I also started on a little backstory about Paws.
It’s no longer so much about balancing between stressors and relaxers, but to remove the whole idea of stress and relaxing from Paws’ head.
Somehow it’s turning into a match-3 game of sorts. There are 8 pieces, 5 special resources, a stress meter, target scores, move limiting, and stubborn pieces that are harder to get rid of than others. Point is to make matches to keep the stress meter from going up in order to reach each level’s objective. The more combos you make at a time, the happier Paws gets, the more the stress meter comes down.
