What it does
It is a dungeon crawler game where you go to different rooms. In the first room, you face off with a dinosaur and have to
kill it using a gun character. In the second room, you have to answer an educational question. Finally, in the last room,
you answer a True or False question which then takes you to the last room, leading to your inevitable loss. Sucks to be
How I built it
We used the pygame library in python to create this game. We got character animations from shutterstock and went
into Illustrator to adjust the character animations to our liking. Then, we imported the images into our code, created
classes for the different objects and graphics in the game, drew them on the screen, and added code to make them
interact with each other.
Challenges I ran into
This was our very first hackathon and game development experience. One of my partners hadn't even touched pygame
before this experience. Furthermore, I was a bit inexperienced with classes. Learning to implement changes in
pygame, make character animations, make graphics interact with each other, and using object oriented programming
above it all was a challenge. However, with tutorials and some of our own thinking, we managed to make progress and
take our first steps into game development.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The accomplishments that we are really proud of are taking our first steps into game development and making object
oriented programming. This was our very first hackathon and coming this far from zero knowledge is one thing we both
are really proud of
What I learned
We learned how to use classes and object oriented programming in python.
