My Game Finder App

About this Project:

Most students love playing video games. Some people don't like playing video games. But even those individuals still have an app game that they play which we still would consider a video game, just in a different format. This app provides a path to find a game that is suited to an individual's interests and likes. The format can be an app that they download, a website they link to or even a game they purchase for an at home console system.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

I really loved the visuals that the team created. Also, this app is very engaging for the people who do not play games so I feel it is a great way to make uninterested people in choosing their own games through different sites, apps, or consoles. I am highly excited to see the prototype or interaction of how this app will work in a real setting.

Nice job Miguel, Maria, Marco, Mikylah, Kaia, Jaynai, Julien, Joseph, and Anaya!

You did a great job with creating an app to help those not interested in gaming to find a game that suits their preferences. Your slides helped me visualize the direction of your app design. I liked how easy the app is to navigate while searching for a game of interest.

This is such a fun and playful idea. It's also helpful for people who may not play a lot of games, but want to try to explore their interests. Your slide deck was well organized! I was able to follow along the user interaction and flow very easily. It would be great to hone in on the browsing interface from slides 5-8 and think about how you present a lot of options to a potential user without overwhelming them with too many options. (This is something all designers struggle with! There is not right or wrong answer, just different ways of trying to tackle the problem.) Great work and I'm so excited to see where you all go with this idea!

This is an idea that could help even those who ARE gamers. The biggest problem I have is not knowing what to play next. Between Steam, EPIC, Origin, and other game libraries it's hard to know where to look for the next game I may be interested in. This app could potentially suggest something I haven't considered playing before which is a WIN-WIN as far as I'm concerned. I would expand this on maybe including the "most popular games" people are playing so that users can maybe experience something outside of their immediate interests and explore something new.
Great work! It's a cool app and a very interesting concept.
