Loot Quest

'Loot Quest' is a board game designed as part of a larger study on the methods with which gameplay delivers narrative. Gather your party and take part in a quest to pillage as much loot as you can from a dungeon with your chosen character. Be careful, as there are monsters, ghosts, and structural insecurities abound! "Loot Quest features a group of players attempting to navigate a dungeon in search of treasure, demonstrating a newly developed lens of game design analysis called 'Assignment theory'- the idea that gameplay is inherently an abstract concept clothed in the contextual information presented, like names, art, sound effects, animation, etc."
