Science games, Cassiopaea glossary themed games, esoteric puzzle
s, teaching & informing games, esoteric and computer equivalent of TV-game shows with meaning & fun.
Animated, playable Science & Health & and Esoteric content can become like a colorful interactive magazine on-screen.
Cassiopaea & Science & Work themed games for mobile phones and PC internet browsers can now be created and published on your own server fast and easy with a tool that is in development since summer 2011. Statistics collecting, hi-score tables, player name storage, etc are available. Tutorials for making games are on-site.
Game control can be touch-screen based - for iPhone, Android
, etc - or mouse/keyboard centered for PC browsers
Construct 2 is the name of the development environment.
It can give control to "paper-cut out" graphics (gouaches découpés) or beads or anything you can create. You can set these as pushable buttons, you can make move these along the screen, create buttons that when pushed change to text display, connect beads that change to meaningful puzzle-pieces, buttons can change to esoteric pictographs, anything you imagine. Can play flash-movies.
A layered tool, like Photoshop, uses transparent, ready-made graphics. Minimal "programming" required. Instead of programming you have event-sheets, easy to use. Programming background is welcome, but not necessary.
If you can paint, draw, or make cut-outs and scan these into a photo-editor you can create graphics.
I have bought this game-maker tool last year at the introductory price. Free edition is available.http://www.scirra.com/
I have been thinking about an esoteric puzzle game and card flip games where there is some text on the back of cards and when you flip them you get the answer. Anything that is fast to create and can inform a lot of people.
Can this be useful for QFG purposes? Games could be created and sold for 0.50 - 0.99 for mobile.
Any suggestions, ideas?
