Game title: Get the club started. (Topic: get the party started)
Platform scratch (needs a keyboard)
Get the Party Started is an educational game about relating to the government.
At first, when you get into the game you’re going to pick Monarchy (kings and queens) or Democracy (leader and supporters). Once you pick your topic, you’re going to have to choose a club other than Art and Science. With the starting character, you have 1 coin per week (10 seconds). You're gonna have to save up to get better leaders and with the leaders, you make more money then you get with the starting character.
The game takes up to 300 seconds, so choose your time wisely. After the 300 seconds, you either win or lose.
We used pixel art to help us create the characters with its amazing tools we used. Our characters are not the best because none of us are artists but we tried our best. Damon did the coding and some art, Joseph did the drawing and the coding and me and Aziz did drawings and helped out on the coding and wrote summaries about the game.
This game may look a bit confusing, but all you have to do is select a government type, pick a club, and collect coins to buy leaders. Then at the end, there is a writing that tells you to send out your leader. You pick the leader by pressing the number under the
leader, using a keyboard.
This game is much related to the real world of political parties, in which people started them. This game is about starting a club which both politics and this game has to do with starting a group.
We have included a slide presentation discussing our process of planning our game and designing our sprites.
I was very impressed with your project being visually compelling, not too complicated, and a process of team collaboration. I particularly love their sprite characters' illustration and how they are visualized in a unique game interface. I would like to recommend considering a communication design program to learn visual design skills and problem-solving processes. Good work!
I love how you decided to make use of a game to try and help describe a typically boring, confusing but important topic like politics. The game play is a little bit confusing and the coin amount could be easily changed so I would recommend being a little more clear with the objectives of the game and how to play. However, your designs are really appealing and your intention behind the game rock.
Interesting approach to the topic!
Very interesting topic, I am impressed with the research you did and the way you adapted this into a game. It is clear that a lot of though went into the design elements. I encourage you to keep testing and evolving this game.
In addition to being a meaningful game about an important topic, I also think your pixel art style and the overall design of your game. Great job!!!
