“New Fish”

A Game Design Project from the G4C Student Challenge
By Rizuna

About this Project:

My project helps to give the basic knowledge of how to take care of a goldfish. This game aims towards kids that want to have a goldfish but their parents won't let them until they know they can take care of it. My project works by clicking buttons to go to different screens with different questions.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

What a great app to help those who are thinking of getting a gold fish determine whether or not they can take good care of it. I love how simple this game is with a friendly and informative message that teaches why the selection is wrong and why the other choice is a better suggested action to take.

Although there's no difference between the type of tank for a goldfish, I think that it would be helpful to do a screen that contains a note telling the user that there's no particular difference between the tanks instead of directly jumping into the next question. So excited for more questions to discover whether I am suitable to take care of a goldfish!

What a fun idea! I'm older, but this reminds me of the Tamagotchi game from years ago where you had to keep the little guy alive. I think this game if it were to go a little more in-depth and you actually had to feed it every day and change the water once a week could actually work to convince parents that a young adult is ready and willing to commit to taking care of a goldfish. Great job, keep pushing this game a little further and help your friends get that goldfish they always wanted.

I am such a fan of how to / tutorial /informational games. There are many instances in which people find learning things through lecture and books to be boring. By putting what the knowledge you want to teach someone in the form of a game, you are more likely to catch their attention and relay your message.

I would like to see how you plan to expand this game. One idea is to expand on the goldfish and create more options, such as what-if scenarios. Another idea I think would be really awesome is to expand the game to include pets other than goldfish.

All in all, good job guys. I am really excited to see where you will go with this!

I like how you made a project on how to take care of animals the proper way since some people don't know how to. I like the colors you used, your game was interesting.
