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.
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
