Escape from Checkerboard Forest (Prototype)
Objective: Locate your friend and escape the forest.
Escape from Checkerboard Forest is a game about learning a space and wrestling with controlling multiple characters in quick succession. You play as a frog and her best friend, an animated skull, as they try to find one another and evacuate their burning home.
Class: Pixel Prototype
Assignment: Make a game based on the theme of Lost or Confused
Postmortem: Definitely the best and most complete project for this class to date. It is very simple, but I think the idea is compelling and properly executed. The most important thing that would need to be improved in a future version would be increasing the size of the world. Beyond that, procedurally generating a world, incorporating sound, and tightening up some of the code could add a lot.
