Internal Obstacles

Sometimes the biggest thing standing between you and your goals is yourself. It might be your fears (“I can’t stand speaking in front of people”), your doubts (“I don’t think I’ll be good enough to make the team”), or a lack of understanding (“This is stupid, there’s no way to solve that problem!”). Think about how you might represent these ideas through game mechanics and how the player should interact with them. Design a game that explores the obstacles within ourselves and how we overcome them.

Here are a few sample themes you might consider:

  • Difficulty managing your time or setting priorities

  • Reluctance to reach out of your comfort zone

  • Pressure to figure out your future or your career

  • Struggle to understand yourself
