Save Princess Alice is the title of our game. The idea is to reach the princess, take her back to the castle, and help the people (or animals) that need you help.
The importance of basic education for small children has provided opportunities for game developers to create a fun, educative games. The goal of this project is to give children a small portion of education that is essential for their development.
With Wilson as my teammate, we divided parts of this project for us to do. Wilson mainly play an important role in making the game interface, making icons, shapes, characters, and other items that are used in this game including all the sounds and music. My part is generally implementing all the items provided by Wilson and give all the logics needed in the game (primarily editing the event sheets in Construct 2).
We thought of a game that is both easy to be played and easy to be understand so that the players will have fun and receive education while playing. The idea is to give the player a certain goal that will bring forth the player’s motivation to play the game while also help the people they meet along the journey. The player will be given a goal; bring back the princess.
The design theme for our game is simple, fun, and looks interactive. We made the icons, items, and characters with cartoon-like design.
A princess from a kingdom named Alice left the castle for her own reason. Concerned with his daughter so much, the king of the kingdom asked you to chase the princess and bring her back to the castle.
The game is a semi-free-roam game that can roam around the map, move to another map, but not able to go back to the previous map. When the character goes to certain locations, events will be triggered. Whenever the ‘events’ are triggered, you will meet a character (person or animal) that needs your help. That’s where the mini games come up. After you complete a mini game, you will be able to continue your journey, continuing to the next map. You will go through several maps before you are able to save the princess. The game ends after you are able to take the princess back to the castle.

After all that, the princess is willing to go back to the castle with you and the game is completed.
