November Microproject: Hidden Object Gamer
Mouse collaborates with the creative team at Wick Editor for the November microproject.
Do you consider yourself a gamer? Recent studies have shown that nearly half of all American adults play video games and yet only about 10% of them would call themselves gamers.
Why is this? One possible reason is that media depictions of video games can often focus too narrowly on 2 or 3 popular game genres while overlooking the many other types of games that tons of people identify with and play. This is a big problem, since identifying oneself as a gamer can be an important first step to developing an interest in learning to code and later deciding to program for a living.
In collaboration with the creative team at Wick Editor, Mouse has designed a project for you to explore a lesser known game genre called a Hidden Object Game to see what sorts of games “casual” gamers may enjoy.
Find the Hidden Object Gamer Microproject on Mouse Create and follow the steps. Then upload a zip file of your hidden object game made in Wick Editor, and submit this project to your group.
