HeroLand- an adventure built within Storyline (and only storyline)

Nov 03, 2016

Hi all, 

It's been an amazing year and with the latest developments from Articulate it's going to be another great one, however I wanted to show you all what can actually be done with Storyline 2 just by itself.  This is more of an experiment, but to be honest would (still might) be my entry if there is a Guru challenge this year.  But as things might be changing soon, I thought I'd give one last shoutout to one of the best design tools out there.

So here's the link - enjoy!

Sincerely, Rick

Spoilers for those stuck at the start : Go to the right of the level, get the watering pot, go to the left of the level and fill the pot with the spring water, then water the plant in the middle of the map. When the flower grows, it's petals will play a song. The petals that play each note correspond with the movement arrows you need to hit in the order you need to hit them to find the key.

I have always been a huge fan of your work. You come up with such creative and well-executed pieces, every time.

But this... this is INCREDIBLE! The idea, the design and the execution are flawless. This is Guru Gold.

Well done, I am still playing it, and cannot wait to see everything that's coming!

Heroland  is a thing of beauty - I am overcome with admiration and respect for Richard Hill.  Heroland is a Storyline Master class! What a phenomenal illustration of Storyline possibilities and e-learning development and a totally entertaining and engaging story too.

Richard, even though you shared how you did it, I am totally blown away by it all, from your concept to your execution. I love the fact that you can collect the scene codes and return to the training to access all of your narrated/illustrated tips on exactly how you created the animation for scenes, characters and events.Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope someday to grow to use at least some of what you were able demonstrate in Heroland.

For those who haven't yet clicked Richard Hill's link and taken the adventure to Heroland, stop, take a break and do so. You won't be disappointed.
