November 13th, local crime, board games, video games.
What it does
Makes people share their knowledge of their area and document the area's "weaknesses" or "hacks" via photo.
The photos will be shared publicly, stripped of location information (blurring identifiable signs and landmarks), providing examples of unsafe or crime-attractive locations and situations.
How I built it
Using what I use for gamedev prototyping: the open source LÖVE 2D game engine.
Challenges I ran into
First I wanted it to contain actual crime data like type of crime, mugshots/phantom drawings of suspects, description. Then I got sick and anxious just summarizing actual police reports and putting them in a list.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Keeping it simple after all.
What I learned
Yet again, I learned to downshift a little more.
