Choose a game you’ve played that has a clearly defined character the player controls. Good examples might include Pandemic, Robinson Crusoe, or Betrayal At House On The Hill.
Replace the character with one of the following:
- A team of people
- A robot
- An anthropomorphic object
- An animal that can talk
Now, write a paragraph or more exploring how the thematic change will impact gameplay for the player. Consider how sometimes changes in theme can lead to changes in mechanics.
