In a group, finalise the finer points of the plot and use case scenario. Weed out any inconsistencies and make sure the tasks will be engaging enough.
Ask Abbey Museum if we can film someone (us or actors) doing one of their digs (if using the Abbey Museum as a resource, it will cost to do a dig. Also it is pretty popular so we may not be able get a place in time for the project to be completed). If Abbey Museum is unavailable, search for an alternate location.
Organise what must be done to complete pre-game setup. This will involve sorting out who does what and initial drafts.
Things to designate:
- Blog author/designer
- Fake Wikipedia author/designer
- Who creates the graph that shows game progress
- Script author
- Acting for clips (either in group or find elsewhere)
- Who films and edits the video clips
- Also, someone who double checks everything would be handy. Someone to notice small or big things out of place.
Review drafts that people have done in the past week. Discuss and check everything. Tweak anything that needs it. Collaboration is the key to success.
Drafts should definitely be complete by this week so that work on the “real deal” may begin. So all of the above should begin this week. Note: the filming dependent on Abbey Museum [*see Week 7]).
Run through the game ourselves and check to see if all links work and all videos play etc. Neatening up the edges. Put up the posters.
Trial run. Observe and record how it goes. Write the report for Week 14.
