We were inspired by simple games such as the dinosaur jumping game, and we wanted a way to play this game with different controls, such as our hands! We also have a theme of frogs in our friend circle for message channels, so that was a big idea as well!

What it does

This is a simple game that allows you to jump over obstacles with your avatar. It works like the dinosaur jumping game in a sense that the game ends when your avatar hits an obstacle

How we built it

We built it using Pygame, OpenCV, and MediaPipe. We also created all our assets using Procreate.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into challenges connecting pygame & the openCV video. Challenges with keybinding and figuring out hex codes for certain keys, and how to implement it correctly. Our group was also volunteering for Tora-Con which happened during the same time as WicHacks so we didn’t have enough time to implement everything we wanted to.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to make our game track our hand and tell how many finger we were holding up. It is also our first time doing an infinite scrolling game so we had ran into issues with creating our looping background and looping the image.

What we learned

We learned about computer vision! We also learned more about pygame features as well as opencv and mediapipe!

What's next for Hoppy Hands

We want to be able to increase the difficulty by making the scroll go faster over time. Another thing we wanted to do was to add more assets so the obstacles would be more interesting such as underwater obstacles.
