Remember Katie? She and instructor Erica always get up to all sorts of fun as part of Game-U’s Accelerate program. Katie’s putting together game after game and learning as she goes. Check out one of her latest creations!
Between modeling and printing a 3D snowman and working on her forest dungeon in RPG Maker, Katie took on an achievement challenge in Project Spark. She and Erica created a snowy world (of course) fenced in by giant cabbages. (There is no “of course” about the cabbages. They’re just cabbages.) Katie’s goal? Successfully create a series of particle bombs to guide a character around an invisible rock. The rock, if touched, spawns deadly dragons. That’s why it’s important to follow the money! Katie added multiple logic cubes to her game and Koded them to explode into a Money Burst effect when approached by the player. As long as the player follows the money, he won’t touch the rock and get roasted by dragons. Achievement unlocked! Once Katie’s player succeeds in navigating the perilous course she designed, he reaches an open space. Here Katie thoughtfully rewards him with dozens of Money Bundle characters, all Koded to appear upon completion of the game. Collecting the characters puts the cash in the player’s account! Katie’s definitely got great taste in victory confetti.
Cool stuff here, Katie! You and Erica make an awesome team. Thanks for sharing your accomplishment with us! Feel free to share your other projects too, because we’re excited to see your progress. Game on!
