SL Cancer Symptoms Game
A recent newspaper article inspired me to try my hand at building a cancer symptoms game using StoryLine. Our nursing learning games are very popular, so I figured adding another would be a good idea.
You can view the game here.
While creating the game, several questions and decisions came to mind:
- I finally discovered how to use the animation feature in SL. So I went wild! After all, this is a game, and aren't games supposed to have lots of action? My question is how much animation is too much?
- I varied the audio feedback for the drag and drop activities. Does this make the game more interesting or more annoying?
- Is the use of music appropriate for this game? For example, should I add a music background track to the Symptoms Summary slides?
Hopefully this example will give others some ideas. Also, some experiences and discussions on use of animation, feedback and music will benefit us all. Thanks,
