A Game Design Project from the G4C Student Challenge

About this Project:
This project includes games for resilience, a game to make the world better, and a game advocating for birds. I came up with the ideas by think of things that I’m interested in. Rock Paper Scissors and the Jump Game for resilience through games because those are games I used to play when I was younger. Making a better world is raising awareness for Asians due to the recent hate they’ve been facing. And advocating for animals is for birds to be safe. It is playable games that require quick thinking, a game that requires luck, and a role playing game that puts you into different scenarios.
Feedback from the Judges:

I like your overall concept and purpose for the project. This issue needs to be addressed. In the future, I think you could go further in the execution of the project to do something interactive.

You have 4 distinct ideas with these games and I think each has potential! Focusing in on one idea and one game and getting that more clear and developed might be a good option for you instead of trying to work on four different at once. Also working with a collaborator could help, by having someone to bounce ideas off of. I agree with you, games help a user tune out and relax, but adding an educational element is smart. You are dealing with important and complex topics here!

These are really great prototypes! I like the different levels of detail of design between the 4; from less polish to more polish(I REALLY like the design of Rock,Paper,Scissors!). I think if you were to continue of this project, you have 2 routes: 1) continue makes small tiny interaction but make a lot more or 2)choose one and continue dive deep and develop further!
