Note regarding submission:
- We can't upload our source code because the game assets are too big. There is a placeholder text file with the link to github in the submission.
Create a crazy fun game on the HoloLens Augmented Reality (AR) platform.
What it does
Ocean's 9000 is a story about the last Bitcoins left on Earth. They belong to the tech mogul Elon Musk and are worth over 9000, so Elon wants to protect them from intruders. That's why he hired the Cryptonians! Their job is to design the most secure crypto bank in the world, and now they need YOU to pen-test it!
Try to get through the bank without stepping on the lava, hitting the triplasers, or getting hit by laser bullets.
How we built it
We started with some sketches first, on what components we need. There was a lot of experimentation, but we decided on laser beams, lava pits, and laser shooting turrets with horse head masks. Then we started designing the concepts on the Unity platform to finally port the game on the Hololens.
Challenges we ran into
We are ALL beginners in game design and Unity programming. Designing a game for the Hololens is quite different from designing a game for the PC, as the control mechanism is by movement and not by WASD.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
All four of us finally learned about Unity and the Hololens platforms!! EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH!
- Lasers: cylinders and such
- Bitcoin, made our own models
- Lava: so authentic it looks more like prata
- Sound effects: recorded ourselves by a genuine European (sorry no italian on our team)
What we learned
Game Design is fun and challenging! Math is important for game design, vectors, speeds and such. Event loop in games is different from normal apps.
What's next for ocean9000
Secure the crypto bank even more, by adding more barricades and levels of difficulty! Multiplayer!
