This week, let’s think about status. How do you reward people for doing cool things in your game world?
In some games you might see someone in flashy armor. Or, maybe they have glowy bits coming from every orifice and weapon on their body. Or, maybe the have a cape! Woo! These are ways to catch your attention and let you know that person did something cool. Maybe they managed to make enough money. Maybe they did a particularly hard quest. Maybe they got lucky and won a special drop.
So, think about a way to reward the player and allowing him or her to show off their status in the game. Some of my thoughts after the break.
