Welcome

It is my hope that Skylab Vimana will introduce a new perspective on collaborative and social games. My thesis project is a multiplayer computer game to be created in Unreal Development Kit. It is inspired by games such as The Legend of Zelda, in so far as the aspect of puzzles with keys and doors, but my ideas on collaborative gameplay are inspired by an apparent need to socialize gameplay, with the growing prominence of massive multiplayer online games. Though Skylab Vimana does not have the capacity to host millions of players, it can be seen as a microcosm through which to observe social dynamics that may arise from gameplay in which a player's choices and progress affect that of their fellow players.

This website will document and exhibit my progress on all aspects of the project throughtout the stages of conception, development and refinement.
