Developpement update on a game I’m making

Hello dear loyal readers,

I realize I haven’t updated my blog in, like, forever, but I have a very good excuse. I was busy doing nothing. What, don’t look at me like that, you wouldn’t have done any better than me and you know it. Anyways, onward to the aforementioned game dev. update.

So, for my history class, we (me and two classmates) are going to be making a game about the government, social issues and the such. No, trust me, it will NOT be boring. You are essentially going to be making the virtual life of everyone super great by solving social issues! Pointless you say? Just look at you playing animal crossing and tell me that again. Alright, now that you bought a burn heal from the Pok√©mon center, let’s get into the details of how the game will actually play.

The game will be a small RPG where you must help people solve social issues such as discrimination, abuse, racism and religious conflicts. How do you do that? You convince the government to help you do it! By debating the issues in a parliament against diverse levels of governmental personalities, you can convince people that things must change and thus they take action and help quickly solve the issues. You can’t just do that all willy nilly though. You must first collect data, facts and polls on how people want things to change. You then present those during the debates at the parliament and if your data is good enough, you win the debate! The social issue is then solved and you can move on to the next problem until everything is okay.

I’ll be posting more about the technical side of things later on in the week, as this project is due in about a week (next monday). Hope this peeked your interest, and I’ll see you later!

P.S. Yes, it does look like I’m insecure for ending my posts with egocentric signatures. No I will not change that and yes I am grand and powerful and amazing. Goodbye!
