This game was developed as part of my Serious Games class. For the class we we worked with the South County Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds organisation to come up with a game concept in order to promote healthy habits in kids. The idea was to incorporate the 5-2-1-0 ideals into our game. For the project we created a simple app the would involve the player earning coins through physical activity. Those coins could be used in game to upgrade your creatures stats. Your stats help you perform better in races against other players. You would also have a variety of mini games to play and unlock a different kind of coin that can be used to purchase cosmetic upgrades such as hats for your creature.
Because this was just developed a proof of concept to show our idea, we only implemented one minigame and the races are against AI racers instead of other players. Also for demonstration purposes we allowed the user to input a number of steps instead of relying on the pedometer.
