I've loved history and knowing facts about the world since I was young. I've also liked being able to test my knowledge. I wanted to build a game that built off the trend of Wordle in the sense that it gave the player hints about the target that they were guessing. I also wanted it to be able to educate people about various countries

What it does

The user is able to play a game where they have to guess a country in 8 hints. The hints start off broad while slowly getting more specific. These questions include information such as location, geography, history, etc. As the user exhausts more hints, the hints make it easier for the user to be able to guess the country.

How we built it

I built this using Python. I was able to retrieve the data using the Countrydetails API

Challenges we ran into

Some of the smaller countries didn't have all of the information that I needed. As a result, I had to create a backup plan in case the country that was selected didn't have all of the information that was needed

Accomplishments that we're proud of

An initial version of Culturle is fully functional.

What we learned

I learned about how to leverage the Countrydetails API

What's next for Culturle

I would like to create a GUI based version as well as a version that would allow for the participant to be able to choose a specific area to receive questions.
