Pinball is a popular classic arcade game that has been played by many generations. In this demo, I'm trying to add a "story" to the pinball mechanics. Players shoot the shark as the ball on the board, and their goal is to eat all the moving fishes in the sea.
By adding a simple narrative like shark eating fishes, I noticed that players' motivation and satisfaction have increased significantly. In the original pinball game, player goal is to get the highest score as possible, which could be repetitive at times. Adding the story means giving the simple mechanics a meaningful goal. As a result, even with the same mechanics, a lot of players expressed that they felt more satisfied than playing the original game.
