This game was created collaboratively by the GKHS STEMClub to address the issues of wild deer that populate Staten Island. Our vision was to create a mobile Augmented Reality version that would allow us to send geo-location data to an agency like the Wild Life Conservation Society as well as a count of the deer that players encounter in real life. There is also a version for the Wild Turkeys that are also all over Staten Island!
The previously submitted project (GKHS Dropping Knowledge V1.4) was also created collaboratively by Jonathan “SkyLegend”, Joshua “RedLegend” , Katie “KatieCat14” , Patricia “PattieCat”, Kevin “KevCat”
This is a great way to show how wildlife tend to run rampant in areas that they probably used to run through before the area was industrialized. The game was a little confusing as no instructions were written. This was good at bringing attention to the deer problem.
This game has great graphics ands sends a strong message. I enjoyed your use of sound in this game.
Great Job at taking a local issue and creating awareness!
This is such a practical and useful project; using augmented reality to alert people and connect them to resources is great. I love the graphics and sound effects!
Hi, Jonathan “SkyLegend”, Joshua “RedLegend”, Katie “KatieCat14”, Patricia “PattieCat”, and Kevin “KevCat”! I love how localized this project is. I’m from Nebraska, and controlling the deer population is something we think about a lot (although we definitely use different strategies). I really like that you’re taking such an ethical position with your game. I’d love to see a more detailed breakdown of how to play. I was able to figure out how to start and stop the game, but once I’m in the game, I’m not sure what action to take to count the deer or move forward in the game. Is there a way to play the Turkey version as well? Adding a couple more lines to your instructions would really help! Cute deer illustrations too—did you create those yourselves? Keep up the good work!
I think this wonderful. Excellent teamwork I really enjoyed reading the information. The stem club members gathered if you should decide also to do it for turkeys this one in front of Mr Jason's house . With all that's going on many animals are wondering where they normally don't I believe this also helps not only us but the animals great job
Great idea to bring attention to the deer situation
Very fun to play
Great Idea - I love the animal faces, the sounds, and the overall mission to help the deer population on Staten Island!!
