While brainstorming for ways to advertise StateFarm's boat insurance, we were inspired by many classic arcade video games such as Space Invaders and Asteroids. These games ultimately became the inspiration for the final gameplay loop of our project.
What it does
Our mobile-friendly web app first greets the user with an interactive obstacle course-esque boat game. When the player inevitably fails, the page will pan to StateFarm's boat insurance information and offerings with graphics that support the information. Finally, at the very bottom of the page, the user is greeted with buttons that link them to resources where they can get quotes for boat StateFarm's boat insurance options and further seek these options.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
One of the biggest hurdles we faced while working on this project was trying to create this project in ReactJS. We realized halfway through trying to develop our application that we did not have enough experience in ReactJS to accomplish what we wanted to do with our application.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for BoatPerils
Initially, we had plans of making the interactive game have more dimension by adding a 2nd and 3rd axis of movement to the ship and having more varied obstacles. In the future, if we revisit this project we could potentially add extra axes to make the minigame have more depth.
