Showbiz Safari uses quirky animal characters to help students learn about animal and plant biology. The director will give you different traits to look for in an animal or plant so that he may cast that individual in a movie that fits them.
My job was to take screenshots of the characters and scenery, edit those images in Photoshop, and put those images together in a coherent promotional picture that could be posted on social media. The images had to be formatted for both Facebook and Twitter. To the left is an example of one of the images I put together. There were five in all, each showing different characters from the game.
Morphy is a fun and beautiful game meant to teach students about how animals have adapted to their environments. I'd argue that, even though it's a tool for young students anyone from any demographic could appreciate playing this game.
Similar to what I did for Showbiz Safari I played through the game, took screenshots of the characters and scenery, then edited the images and saved them as high resolution .png files. I then put the characters and scenery together to create five promotional images, formatted to be posted on both Facebook and Twitter.
Bumper Ducks is a game meant to teach students about mass and acceleration, some of the key aspects of Physics. This game uses adorable ducks in order to help students learn the effects of mass and acceleration on an object as it crashes into another object.
I used the same methods of collecting and editing images with Bumper Ducks as I did with Morphy, Showbiz Safari, and Disaster Detector. This game required a bit more photo editing in Photoshop than the other games, but I was proud that I was able to create five well rounded and interesting images optimized for both Facebook and Twitter.
Disaster Detector is a game that teaches students how weather affects the economy and condition of various different towns. These towns have different environments and spending limits that determine how well they can prepare themselves for natural disasters. The game also teaches students the name of the instruments that measure for natural disasters and how those instruments work.
It was fun putting all the characters and scenery together for the Disaster Detector promotional images.
