HOW TO CREATE A GAME
By Lachlan B
When first starting IGNITE I had no clue of what was to come throughout the weeks I spent working on my project. My original idea was to create a game based off a clicker type style with the main objective being to destroy the virus (COVID) as we have currently been in lock down for quite a while, unfortunately the game got corrupted and deleted. These are my journal entries throughout this project and this is how my IGNITE project went.
STARTING MY IGNITE JOURNAL ENTRY 1
The was the first journal entry I wrote when starting IGNITE, now that I'm looking back on this I can answer many of the questions I wrote on my journal. Overall I accomplished my goals but unfortunately my project didn't go well although I believe I was successful as I have more knowledge about this topic and a more understanding about code. Its not about the destination its about the journey.
HALF WAY THROUGH MY IGNITE
Today is my first IGNITE session from home because of lockdown. Since my first journal I have spent my time planning for my game and looking at tutorials and tips. I have come up with a basic idea of what my game is going to be about. It's going to be a clicker game based off of COVID, in which you have to click to destroy the virus. I have started creating elements to my game as you can see on the right.
MY FINAL JOURNAL ENTRY
Overall the IGNITE subject has been a blast with many up and downs along the ways. My original idea was to create a clicker game based on destroying viruses throughout the centuries with COVID-19 being the first one. I spent weeks creating this game and unfortunately towards the end my files got corrupted and deleted because of the school’s antivirus system. This made me upset as I spent a lot of time on this and wanted to see the final product and present it. Throughout this experience I have learnt so much from learning how to code to designing game features, and if I was to create a game or something I would either use a different game designing engine or have a separate antivirus system.
