We are going to continue on the theme of “Clicker Game” which we started in Week 31. You can use any work product which you started using Week 31 as a base for your game – or pivot in a different direction. If you were not here last week for these lessons, I am happy to go over the basics with you. There are also numerous tutorials, videos, and other resources out there for you to get information off of – just as if you were a professional looking to learn new content post high school.
Your Clicker Game is to be based on a theme. Maliki did a great job with a theme of Pokemon. Another example that you should shoot from Avery (former Cawd, Cawd2 student from Burlington – currently studying Game Programming @ Champlain). He created “Meme Farmer”, in which you farm clicks with popular Memes a couple years ago.
So, pick a theme, and run with it. You can drive the game more serious, you can drive it silly, so long as it is coherent.
What we are looking for:
Some elements which Avery added to his game includes:
- Music – try it
- Mute button – try it
- The ability to click and see real time stats of the game – try it
- Load / Save Data function (though this may not be perfect, it is pretty functional) – try it
Other potential elements to consider:
- More current memes – or an entirely different topic completely.
- Content which moves or changes – design elements and colors.
If you would like to have user testing from the Cawd class before your presentation for grade (see below) I am happy to schedule, just ask.
Program us a game! Make sure html5 is valid, but don’t worry about creating a responsive design. Desktop only.
You are going to upload this project to your “webDev” folder to a folder called “week_05″.
- Assigned Wednesday, May 9th
- Due Thursday, May 24th at 10:00. Your games are going to be evaluated by the Cawd class. Your users are players, this will give us a nice bit of user testing – and show me (acting as the Creative Director of this “project”) if your Games are fun.
