The name of our game is election busters, and the topic was get the party started which was about political parties. It will have an impact for those playing the game because it shows the steps you will go through in an election, and you get to make your own decisions to impersonate your own campaign. I chose this topic because there was much talk about elections going around at the time and I wanted to research it and find out how it all works. For the game, you would have to answer yes or no to the questions until you get to the press conferences, where you preach your campaign and your viewpoints to better the country. The URL to see my game is https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/367088059/.
We have included the Brainstorming presentation we presented in class to have our idea approved. We have also included some of the images that we created from graphic design software from various sources.
This was a really interesting topic. I like how you walked us through the election process. I think it would he helpful to see what would happen if you lost the election or if it were a two player game. The graphics were great and the story line very complete.
All I can say is great job! With the elections coming up this is an important topic that I'm glad you took action in. One thing to make your already great game even better is that you make this or that questions instead of fill in the blank. You could also add an option if you want to be a girl or boy just to make it more diverse. But overall its super fun and informative!
WOW! I feel like a real politician after playing your game. It was exciting to guide me through the election process, as well as give me the space to voice my own changes I would make to my country in order to share my viewpoints with the world. Love how the game is so interactive, while also being extremely educational. You guys created a game that accomplished so much in such little time. My only recommendation would be to create some sort of "character picker" at the beginning so I can make my own character, because I noticed at the end the person who won the election was a white male, when we could use some more diversity in our leadership for the USA! Go team!!
Hi Iosi, Aaron, Steven, and Joseph, Thanks for coming together to create this project here at Emoti-con! I'm impressed with the ambition put into this game. Currency, Audience, Election system and more. I can see how these ideas made it into the game - that's no easy feat. I particularly liked the part that asked the user to create their own speech on the spot. Believe it or not - it made me think and reevaluate what my position is on all sorts of political topics. It's easy to criticize those making the rules, but when you are given the responsibility to do it yourself - it immediately illuminates why some of those rules might be there in the first place. In a future version of this, I'd like to see an ending where you lose the election, maybe because the player picked some wrong choices. Though overall, I'm impressed by the graphics, and all of the game mechanics that made it into the game! Keep it up. -Charlie
Hi Iosi, Aaron, Steven, and Joseph, thank you for your submission. This game is extremely well done & beautiful to play through. I was impressed by the original thought, visual design, & implementation. I would want to explore what the storylines are & ensure that there are clear paths for each route. It would be helpful to know how the input answers can change the outcome. Overall excellent work!
