We really wanted to make a game. Then we saw the EPA Hack Idea: Game challenge and thought, "why not?"
How it works
Very simple. Swipe left if the object in question should be thrown in the trash can, or swipe left it it should be recycled.
Challenges I ran into
We never created a game in Unity3D built for a mobile device. We also never used gesture recognition for swipes, taps, etc.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were able to make a full fledged game
What I learned
How to make a full game in Unity3D
What's next for TrashOrRecycle
Animations, more objects to throw away, timer, compete amongst friends, push to a tweet.
