Challenge #185: Santa's Mission
This was a fun one! I lucked out with this challenge, because I'd already begun working on a fun game for our employees, as a sort of interactive holiday card from the training department.
Goal: Create a fun, interactive quiz game that could be used in a blended learning scenario to reinforce knowledge, to be emailed to learners a few days after a longer e-learning or classroom session.
I only had to modify it a bit to fit the challenge, but it still works as a little quiz game about winter holiday traditions from around the world... although it is fairly difficult without the pre-learning!
This is the first game I've ever tried to make, so I wanted to focus on the backend rather than graphics editing. I used the following resources for graphics:
Game Background: I used this awesome Photoshop plugin, which is very user friendly, to create a custom background in minutes.
Game Assets: Ververver on graphicriver is my new favourite asset find; they make great, affordable asset packs. I bought this Christmas-themed set that was intended for Match 3 games, and very easily re-purposed it.
Unfortunately, because of these purchased assets, I can't share my file, but to be honest it's a bit of a mess! I'd be happy to share my techniques for any fellow newbies who want to know how I did it, and I'd love some veteran feedback!
