Project Name: Trouble on the Tightrope: In Search of Skateboard Sam™
Code Name: "BODY IMAGE"
Timeline: 4-5 months
Role: Technical Architect & Lead Flash Developer
Project Type: Online Educational Animated Adventure Game website
On this 2005 project, I was part of a small team of about 8 to help design, develop, and deploy an animated adventure surrounding public health and body image for children.
Essentially our team created a full 2-d animated animated world consisting of hours of play, from scratch.
I was responsible for taking artwork and other assets and creating a system to make the world a reality along with a fellow Flash Developer (ironically named Sam!) who was focused primarily on small internal games to the system.
We used a lot of different technologies on this project ranging from Microsoft IIS, ASP, and the Flash Platform.
The end result was a fully animated adventure game where kids learned about their health through the leverage of fun games and an entertaining adventure story.
This project won some awards, and I was credited in some academic research journals for this particular piece of work.
