We think it's important for kids to learn about mental health as well as physical health, so they know how to take care of themselves and others.

What it does

A 2D interactive storytelling game that teaches kids about the importance of physical and mental health through short scenarios between characters.

How we built it

We used the game engine Unity and the programming language C# to build it. We also used visual studio as a text editor for the code. We made hand drawn assets by using a mobile drawing app and a stylus. For audio we used SoundTrap.

Challenges we ran into

Biting off more than we could chew. We often overestimated how much we could learn about Unity in a short amount of time.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Making the bear (the main character) move around the screen!

What we learned

We learned about using Unity as a tool, something we've never used before.

What's next for Helpful Bear

To cover additional health topics.
