childfriendly Interactive Scene App for kids aged 5 or less
Heiko posted a topic in Your WorksHi everyone! It started as a project for my daughter (she was at the age of about 2). She loved two apps I had on my old iPad - both were animated/interactive scenes. Just tap somewhere and see what happens. She loved it. On my way to find more apps like that, I had a hard time, so I decided to try to make one myself. So, this is it. I did some research, found Monogame, found Spriter, and the great SpriterDotNet implementation from loodakrawa. I love working with that. And although I am not a great artist, I tried my best. As my daughter liked the result much, I decided to actually publish the app now for Android and even iOS lately. I am really amazed by the ease a game can be ported nowadays. In case you want to have a look (all animations and sound-triggers were done using Spriter), here are the links to the screencast-movie and store-links (warning: it's a paid app now!): Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RraciSqa8gM Google PlayStore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.heicompany.nana.camping Amazon AppStore: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B0758F4HST/ref=mas_pm_camping Apple AppStore https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/crayon-camping-adventure/id1397051319?l=de&ls=1&mt=8 Please consider: the game aims kids aged 4 or less. So don't expect fancy achievements or other goals. I didn't even implement any menu, options, or text to read. Kids at that age usually can't read yet. Also, I didn't add any in-App-Purchases or advertising. I really dislike that myself and rather pay for an app. But also I was shocked, that other apps targeting kids claim to be free and are full of that stuff. So, no wonder that nobody really finds my app in the stores - everybody just scans the "for free"-stuff. But that's ok. It was fun making it anyway. In case you're interested, have a look. I'm pleased if I was able to make someone other than close friends happy with it. You all have a great day! And thanks for the great software and as well as the great community! Heiko PS: the mexican guitarrist at the lower left is the only animation done with bones. Whenever I make another game, I plan to use that a lot more. It worked really well! PPS: Happy to ready what you think.
