Today we held a workshop where we put together some final designs for the game we’ve been working on.
If we do a Mario skin with a 2D processing library, the images need to be really small. So we designed some more pixel art based on the sketches we worked on over the vac.
Game title: Khazaland OR United States of Khayelitsha
Khazaland is a tough place to go to school. In this game we show the various obstacles you have to overcome if you want to succeed academically.
There are bullies on every corner. Just as you’ve dealt with one, another one shows up.
Then you need to be able to face up to tougher enemies such as the Evil Cook who dishes out the school lunches, and the Cruel Principal, who specialises in kicking kids out of school.
Even walking to school can be a challenge. Cars come at you from nowhere, you have to jump to avoid a hit and run.
At the same time you need to be reading all the books you can find. Only problem is, they are usually out of reach, on at the top of rather large obstacles.
Just keep trying and you’ll reach your goal of our game – success at school.
