This is fairly unrelated to Ludum Dare, but it will involve me coding a game, and I I’d just see if any of you were interested in trying it when it’s done or have any ideas for me.
The general idea is that I’ve got an assignment for history about the Federation (the Federation of Australia) and it’s a creative assignment so I can write a computer game as my assignment. My plan is to create a game where you have to run a certain distance and there’s some power-ups and obstacles. Hurdles would slow you down if you don’t jump over them (they will have text in them which say things which impended Australia from federating) and there’d be true/false icons which you could either jump to collect if it’s true or not collect if it’s false. The idea would be to teach people about the Federation (my classmates and I will be playing each other’s games) so I would be putting facts about Federation in it in the power-ups and the hurdles.
If you have any suggestions, that would be appreciated.
