1. Altiplano. Altiplano is set in the South American highlands of the Andes, somewhere between the mountain ranges of Bolivia and Peru, where the altitude of more than 3, meters imposes tough demands on the people to utilize the scant vegetation for their needs..

This may mean more work for the teachers, while having students play these games are supposed to take some pressure off of the teachers. We chat in depth with Roper in Chapter 5, “General Game Design: Role-Playing Games (RPGs) and Persistent Online Worlds,” on role-playing game development, but here we have his inspir-ing and enlightening words on strategy game design, and how WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos could serve as a benchmark to others.

We are not talking about years or months of serious game development, but about a few days. Now, you should be convinced that serious game design is not that time-consuming. 4.
