Tactical Eradication of AIDs Manifestation (T.E.A.M.) is a four-player side-scrolling shooter designed with a team of four designers for Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, 2010. This four player XBox game was my first take at a multiplayer game and my first time programming for Xbox with Microsoft’s XNA in Visual Studio 2010. With a team of three others, we designed this game as a four-person side scrolling shooter where all of the players have to work together to save the host. Each player has their own life source displayed on the left with matching colors to their ships, while the host’s life source is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
My goal was to keep the HUD as simple as possible to create a beautiful, full-screen game screen for all four players.
