Today you will be building the game Ever Quest. This game includes duals, rivalry, obstacles, and much more. The point of this game is to defeat all the challenges and be the first one to proceed through the 11 different levels. The game players will travel through the different levels and will experience the different campaigns created by the game creators. As the game progresses the difficulty level will increase as well. The entire game is based off a novel called Everlost by Neal Shusterman. There are four different characters in this role-playing game: Mary, Lief, Allie, and Nick. All of them are characters in the novel Everlost. Some characters have some advantages in some levels, others don’t. The game takes you through the setting that the book goes through chronologically. It begins and concludes with the tunnel of light that brought them into Everlost in the first place. Players will experience the game as if they were really in the game.

Step 3: Final Design
Create your final design. If you chose not to mix two different designs up, skip this step.
