The game we have been collaboratively working on is called Earth Killer. The title of this game has a very strong and deep meaning behind it, because it is related to the topic of pollution. We have chosen to work and help solve the topic of pollution because everyday each of us see how little by little our planet is slowly disappearing because of people polluting it! As many already know, pollution has become a very serious topic in our world today, since individuals are simply not disposing their waste into the right places. In many cases trash ends up in the oceans, forests, etc., which creates a hazardous environment for its habitants. The platform this game was created in is called Scratch, which created a great experience for our team when designing this game. As stated above, our game is based on the topic of pollution, which is an extremely serious topic in our society. We created our main obstacle as cigarette buts and nicotine since they are one of the biggest portion of the polluters. In order to win in our creation, you will need to collect 50 pieces of trash( cigarette buts and nicotine ), using the garbage bin. We have used several pieces of coding to create a very entertaining but at the same serious and informative game, for the player(s) to enjoy. We worked together to create this game to inform our society about the serious problem in our world and the possible solutions for it. To play this game you will need to follow these instructions:
Collect 50 pieces of trash to win!
A = Move left
D = Move right
E = Boost (every 5 seconds)
Space = Jump
We hope to inform our society about the serious problem that's been negatively affecting our world and to create a very enjoyable game.
We included a slide show presentation about our planning. This is the 2nd and correct submission of this game. The first one was submitted with the wrong student name and the wrong slide show presentation. Thank you in advance for understanding.
I like how you walked through your thought process of narrowing down ideas. The game feels focused on the issue. I like how it uses a familiar format to show people direct action they can take outside of the game.
I love the smooth transitions in your game whenever you collect a piece of trash. You clearly put a lot of time into the gameplay, the player character moves, jumps and dashes really smoothly and responsively.
I really love when games about important issues create a fun experience that connects us to actions we can take in real life. You do that by encouraging us to "catch" or clean up the environment. I'd like to hear more about your connection to the topic. What makes you all excited about the environment?
I love that you put your brainstorming ideas into the presentation deck. That gives me a great idea of how you got to produce such a wonderful project. One thing I would love to see? Tell me more about yourselves, Sofia T, Ariana R, Haoran (Eric) X, and Dominic K! Your stories have poured into this game and by knowing more about you and your backgrounds, it only adds to the game.
This is a great game inspired by an important issue. I am also impressed that you shared your brainstorming process in the slides. great work!
