»The strategy game G.O. is a social game where the player is put to the test, how well he knows himself and his friends.«
You find yourself on a virtual playing field called the grid on which you compete against up to six players.
The goal of the game is to conquer as many fields as possible within a fixed period (eg. 24 hours / 72 hours / 1 week). Clue in winning the game is that you can conquer the next field only within a fixed time. Time is of the essence. Take strategically important positions first to gain an advantage! No game similar. Every game is unique. Even if everyone is playing for themselves, it is possible to gang up to outmaneuver a third player!

Own mission field
Grid Occupation is my bachelor thesis in the course »Interactive Media at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg.
In the initial research phase I compared famous »social games« to develop my own game design.
For the conceptional work I've invested a lot of time. My goal was to develop a game concept which incorporates both a cooperative and a competitive approach.
The goal of developing several Achievements was to grand future long-term motivation.
The prototype was implemented with Adobe Flash Builder and the Facebook ActionScript API.
The playable prototype is integrated with Facebook and can be tested.
