1 or 2?

leave a comment »

During a brainstorming, we come up with a question on the ‘project packaging’.. Do we have to create one ‘project package’ wherein the user will choose which tool to use, wii or sunspot? OR  do we have to create separate packages, one for wii component and one for sunspot?  hmmhhh..

plans for the fourth..

leave a comment »

For our fourth game, we decided that the topic would be on identifying numerical place values.  At first we thought of the don’t-let-the-mosquito-get-to-the-kid kind of game, where in the player must answer the question by splatting the mosquito with the correct answer before it bites the child. But we wanted the game to be more child friendly so we changed the mosquitoes to ants, and the child to cake.  The process is still the same, the ant with the correct answer will be splatted.

The interaction that we plan to use here are using the directional buttons of the wiimote to choose the right ant and then swinging down to splat the ant.

Sample screenshots to follow.

Still, this is subject to change.

‘bye, first game? :D

with one comment

We had our latest presentation last Monday, and though we had some problems regarding the projector and the screen resolution, I think it was one of our best demo days. Just a little bit more polishing, then we’ll be ready for alpha testing.

For now, what’s left for us to do(to finally say goodbye to our first mini game) are the following:

  • fix the layout of the screen (sorry, we’re really noob when it comes to creativity)
  • change the timer – rearrange / add the time
  • include the metrics of usability on our discussions
  • add the player’s profile for the assessment; should be able to send it through email.

We have until this weekend to finish all these.  Goodluck to us. We can do this. I know we can.. 😛

first game done?

leave a comment »

We are almost done with our first game, and we also started packaging the classes that we are using including those that we are going to test for “reusability”. We just had a problem when running the program on VMware, but it does run properly on other machines. We still can’t figure out what’s wrong. It does not return errors, so we’re really clueless about it not running on VMware.

Last presentation, my partner and I showed what we have worked on for 2 days and 2 nights: the extra random letter and the recording of words.The next task that we are going to work on will be Kinespell 2+SunSpot and also Kinespell+Wii. We also plan to update our Wiki (apparently, we lack on entries :p).

Stay tuned for some updates….
