After coming up with our PX goals we began researching different puzzle games to pinpoint the type of puzzles game. We knew that the game had to be in first person so we looked at other games with this aspect. The first game to come to mind when I thought of a first-person puzzle game was Portal from Valve. After that we looked at games such as Uncharted and Tomb Raider which combine shooting with elements of puzzles solving. Lastly, for the setting we researched images from Indiana Jones, both the movies and the games. After we had discussed using a gun that would control gravity, I thought of the gravity gun from the Half-Life game which was also created by Valve. We used this research to combine many different elements to build our own game.
