Luke and Jimmy (Me) create a game to help the awareness about poverty. The key technology of the game are AI chat bots.
Game Overview Poverty Chat is a unique web based game that uses natural language to explore a virtual world. The player will have an opportunity to meet an array of different characters. The player will have to solve the mysteries by chatting with other characters in the game. These characters don’t have the average computer response you are used to; they each have their own personality and will response to you differently using an AI Bot technology. The idea is to get the user involved in conversations. Some of the characters may refere to others to find the right answer. When the answer is found thier notepad takes note for them for later levels.
The theme of the game is Poverty. The player will learn what, why, and solutions to poverty throughout the game and will be needed to win the game.
The goal of the game is to help solve poverty by learning about poverty and spreading the word about poverty.
For some reason these frogs forgot how to swim. Help the frogs stay on the log. There are 4 types of frogs and each behave differently. Drag the frogs and logs (or click) with precision to save our frogs.
Frog log was the Grand Prize Winner in the MIX10 10k coding challenge! The prize was ticket to the MIX10 conference(Web Design/Developer) in Las Vegas including hotel at Mandalay Bay Hotel and $1,000 visa card.
I am not surprised at all that Frog Log won the hearts of my fellow judges and the Grand Prize. It’s a good idea that makes you smile when you first put your hand on it, packed with functionality and a great showcase of what you can do with a few lines of HTML5.
Just a great little game, addictive and well thought out with some interesting gameplay. I would LOVE to see this developed further by the author… My only ding was that drag-n-drop failed in Firefox 3.5; clicking worked fine, though. http://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2010/02/24/mixmasters/
This is a project we entered into the ImagiNations Design Competition. Our team – Gautam,Raj, Avik, and Jimmy (me) are waiting feedback from Disney’s Imagineering. Wish us luck..
A cartoon featuring You!!
Most individuals experience power and joy in their dream world! The sense of happiness multiplies enormously in the company of family and friends. The power of group experience and group dynamics can never be explained but rather should be experienced. Our idea of “A Cartoon featuring you!” explores the territory of group behavior and group psychology attempting to unleash the joyous creature in an individual and in a group.
We call our project as “equally technical and creative”. Our plan is to provide an experience platform in the form a game-studio where two or more groups can participate in a game exploring the co-operative behavior within the group and the competitive behavior between the groups. The ability for the groups to make a collective decision combined with head & arm movement based character control on a big screen differentiates the idea.
Think of a family controlling a virtual raft on screen, a close friend directing its movement and a kid distracting the opponents in another raft – all motion controlled on a high-definition 3D world and possibly 4D with the support of air and water blowers. The ability of the team to drive the raft synchronously in a desired path escaping the hippos provides the opportunity and immense experience for a group.
MyMouseGames.com website is used to browse the games created by other teacher and to log in to their own classroom to create their own customized multi-mouse games. This site also host the web services that the games use to populate the question in the games.
MyMouseGames placed First place in the Imagine Cup US Nation final. The imagine Cup is a worldwide software design competition sponsored by Microsoft. Our team – Jimmy, Mark, and Luke Dickinson (brothers) advanced from first round to semi-finals to national finals in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our prizes was $8,000 to split among us and to continue on to the Imagine Cup World Finals in Cairo, Egypt.
The theme of the Imagine Cup’s in 2009 was the 10 world goals of the UN, mostly helping developing countries. Anyway we chose to focus on education and to build it in Silverlight and ASP.NET. Basically our entry is a bunch of mini educational games that allow you multiple mice on one computer to play. The idea is one computer can work for many students. Also the teachers can change the lesson data that is being used in each game. On top of that, functioned completely though a simple web site. The purpose was to help every student have access to a computers in ill funded schools.
