About this Project:

Vaping is the new age cigarette. Children are becoming addicted to this harmful substance. Our app is a video game that shows the dangers of vaping. Students will play through the levels and dodge flying vapes. If they get hit they will lose a life. Everytime they lose all their lives, a quote about the dangers will pop up. We came up with this idea because we learned about the harmful effects of vaping in health class. Then we discussed how many kids around our age vape and we were concerned.

We created an animation to go along with our game. We wanted to code the game but we just started learning coding.

Feedback from the Judges:

A very clever approach in addressing an overlooked health concern amongst young populations. Excellent work!

👏 Product Manager at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
Firstly, your creativity shines through in your concept of a video game that addresses the crucial and potentially harmful issue of vaping among teenagers. It's clear that you understand your target audience, as video games are a medium that younger generations actively engage with. Well done on this innovative approach!

However, as you continue to develop your concept, there are several areas that could further strengthen your presentation. A detailed presentation or narrated video, for example, could help others better understand your intentions and the potential impact of your video game. This could include market research, user research, competitive analysis, and persona creation to better depict who you're designing this game for.

Creating an interactive, clickable prototype of your game could also provide a more tangible understanding of what you're proposing. While your brief paragraph does offer some insight into what inspired your idea, more depth would potentially be a better selling point for your video game.
