A zenith project is one of the final projects a senior completes at Freestyle Academy.
The word zenith is used to describe something at its “peak” or most excellent. Henceforth, a zenith project is what a senior completes at the peak of their freestyle story.
My zenith project is to design, and produce a card game. I have been playing card games for the last 12 years of my life predominantly Yugioh.
The challenge i’m placing for myself is to self design and create a card game.
Because I am a design student at Freestyle Academy, I designed cards. I self created a template, as well as the individual card arts.
To start I thought of how the game will actually play, and the different kinds of core mechanics.
I created a base for the different cards, and then built a frame for the pixel art.
Both the pixel art and the card designs were built in Illustrator, using vectors.
How to play
You start the game with a single factory that produces electricity every turn to their electricity pool.
With your electricity pool you can play machines, or buy cards from the market.
The market is a collection of cards that you can purchase using your electricity pool.
How to win
Each player will have a battery with 0% capacity in it.
To win, the player must collect 50 electricity
