About this Project:

I came up with my idea by thinking of what’s happening on our planet right now and combining it with how to create something using my art skills.

I worked on this drawing in MS Paint on my computer! I drew this pixel by pixel to have a nice look of pixel art. I resized it after I was done to make sure it was big enough and had a good enough quality. First, I started with each floor level and added the details to each one. Then, I added the garbage around each floor plus adding details. Lastly, I finished it off by making little designs in the background and adding our little worm mascot!

If I could develop it, it would work as a game app! You would be able to move and jump around as the worm and collect all the pieces of garbage while gaining points. Then you could use those points to help build or support things on the planet in another feature!

More About this Project

This issue is important to me and others because we need to help our Earth, our planet! Things are getting worse everyday and we need to make it better together. Our pollution rate is increasing each day and each year and we need to stop that.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Director, Technical Account Management at Salesforce — Emoti-Con Judge
Overall, your pitch demonstrates creativity, attention to detail, and a thoughtfully developed concept for a game app. The combination of your artistic skills and the environmental theme has the potential to resonate with users and create an engaging experience.

Transforming your art into a game app is a great idea. The concept of controlling the worm character to collect pieces of garbage and earn points adds an interactive and gamified element to your artwork. The incorporation of a point system that allows players to use those points to support or build things on the planet provides an interesting and rewarding gameplay feature.

The focus on collecting garbage and supporting the planet aligns with an important and timely theme - you're addressing a relevant and significant issue.

The inclusion of a worm mascot adds personality and character to your artwork and potential game app.

It would be interesting to think how you could connect this to real life impact.

I love your project a lot but I think something that would make the project better would be to explain more about the problem and the effects of it if we don't help it and how your game could help us solve this problem or teach us more about the problem.
