abstract
Microsoft has made game development accessible to independent developers with their development of XNA in conjunction with C#. Using these tools we have created an interactive 3-D puzzle game. We focused greatly on user interaction, game play, and graphics to make Penguin Blocks as enjoyable and challenging as possible. XNA allows for the use of high end graphical textures created via other programs such as Adobe Photoshop. This convenience allows for each individual developer to place their personal strengths into the game development process. Penguin Blocks requires the user to push ice blocks around a map in order to create a path which traverses the span of the map. While creating the path the user must avoid obstacles present within the map. Some maps contain very complicated puzzles, forcing the user to carefully plan movements in advance.
