About this Project:

Backstory: In Scuba Heritage, the user is a Scuba Diver, who aims to continue the legacy of their father. The father is known as the Greatest Scuba Diver around. The father used to clean up trash from nearby lakes and oceans. Before he passed away. The player is given their father’s Scuba Gear and a memoir of his adventures and an ancient legend.

Addressed Issues: Scuba Heritage aims to address the issue of plastic waste in our Oceans. The player will be collecting and cleaning up lakes by completing levels.

How it Works: The user will play levels and explore the surrounding area, trying to collect all the trash in the nearby levels that progressively get harder. The user can purchase upgrades for their Scuba Gear with gems that can be found within the levels. The design of the game is similar to Super Mario, my game will represent a scrolling platform game.

More About this Project

Scuba Heritage is a project I built using the App Lab on Code.org, which is accessed through the link for the game. I used guides from Mouse to learn UI/UX Design. Figma was also essential towards building the general idea of the game, first with black and white icons then with colorful images and icons to bring the game to life. I hope that this game inspires people to take care of our oceans or we may harm species who live in the oceans. Earth is a special planet, where we can experience the many wonders of life throughout the world. It is important to keep our planet healthy and safe for current generations and many more to come!

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Lead Immersive Designer/ Content Lead at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
This is super cool and innovative. The game is fun and engaging -- I love the design and your overall concept!

It would be cool to include an in-person element for people to get points for IRL trash clean-up or event attendance too. Awesome job!

👏 Technology Consultant at Ernst & Young — Emoti-Con Judge
Great app! Love the story behind the app, the creative visualizes, and the message to proactive take care of the ocean/environment. I like the idea for users to engaged by the rewards system, and the effort taken to complete the coding and design! Great job, and consider adding educational elements about sealife on different levels or volunteering in-person if the app has inspired them!

👏 Senior Analyst at Acadian Asset Management — Emoti-Con Judge
What a hip look on an entertaining game! The color scheme and icons are cool. Our responsibility to keep the oceans clean is as important as ever these days. You did a great job of tying intergenerational bonding and responsibility into the broader responsibility that we all have towards the environment. I enjoyed diving deep and picking up the underwater trash. Love it!
