A Game Design Project from the G4C Student Challenge
By Ryan and Leana
High School Students from Thomas A. Edison Career and Technical Education High School
About this Project:
Our project is about adopting a dog, whether it’s a guard dog or a family dog. You will be able to choose a small or large dog and there are many different breeds to choose from. In the end, we give you tips/instructions on how to take care of your new dog! We came up with our idea because we know that there are many dogs that have no families and need homes. After coming up with this idea we thought that adopting an animal was one of the best for a dog to get a home. Our game not only allows dog a chance to get a home but also people help choose the perfect do for their family.

Let me start off by saying that I love this project and the concept of it! I have a few friends who have struggled to find the right breed of dog for their family, and If they had this Animal Adoption Game it would have made the process much easier! This project took a common problem, and turned it into an easy, fun, and fast quiz that anyone can take. One thing that would make your project even better would be; The last section to include information on how to take care of the specific breed of dog that was chosen for the person. Cant wait for a cat version of this game to come out as well! Keep up the great work, and great thinking!

Such an impactful project! Who would've thought this will inspire me to think about adopting a dog!
I love the doggo pics are amazing - the colors look good and the graphics are vibrant! This is what a creative approach looks like.
As a person who does not know much about dogs, I would love to see more information about the specific breeds - what makes these dogs special? Why is one a better family dog vs a guard dog? And then I can make a much more informed decision! So congratulations on building something that has the potential of changing the problem of overpopulated shelters. And you get a furry friend as well 🐶

This project is awesome! I love he way you were able to create a fun and engaging app with not many steps to get through, but could still share valuable information with the player after they have gone through your game.
Using a playful app like this to give helpful information is so incredibly powerful! I love the idea of browsing for fun and then being informed! Not often we see an innovative design like this!
I will say in the end that I would have loved to see a little bit more diversity in the informational pages! Though it was awesome to play through, it would be great to have specific details on the dog breeds and how they should each be treated or even how they age!
Overall, amazing work! As someone who has owned many dogs in his life, I wish I had an app like yours years ago! Great job!

I like how this game really makes you feel as if you are going to adopt an animal. It seems to be very interesting by the eye.

This is great and helps look out side the screen and rather looks at how tec can be used in more complex moments.
