We had some inspiration from Papers Please at first with the general idea of attempting to create a game that overwhelms you. As development proceeded we started seeing similarities to Undertale and steered into it harder.
What it does
Homework Please is a time-management/survival video game. It is meant for fun and to keep pushing past your highscore before inevitably being consumed by the tasks.
How we built it
This project was built using Python 3.10 and Pygame 2.1.2. Version control was done with git and github.
Challenges we ran into
Time was a decent constraint adding heavy burn out as well as trying to balance adding all the features we wanted without sacrificing quality.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made a game! And we think it's kinda fun!
What we learned
Pygame was a new library for some of us. Also watermelon redbulls are ridiculously tasty.
What's next for Homework Please
Homework Please is a stepping stone for future game development and future coding competitions/jams.
