My canvasser game is finally finished and has been added to my CLIO module! This was a struggle to get finished, primarily because I was experiencing some really weird canvasser glitches. I was only able to work on the program for about an hour each day before something went wrong with my computer, resulting in my edits not saving countless times. Eventually I was traumatized enough to be saving every 5 minutes and got it done 🙂
I ended up splitting the culinary / biological classifications into two separate games, as I felt it would be a bit too complicated to reset all of the assets after the first click-and-drag game was over. There are some animations that I can’t capture with a screenshot so I’ll try to paint you all a picture of what’s going on.
In this first screenshot, I’ve just dragged the pineapple into the culinary vegetable box. The pop up on the right (angry pineapple) fades out within 2 seconds, and the clickable pineapple is being launched back to its original spot for the user to try again.
Here, I’ve just dragged the plum into the correct basket and a happy plum appears 🙂 This will also fade out in 2s.
Same functions are applied to the biological classification game with different pop ups for the adjustments. Don’t get me wrong, this was super fun to make and SO rewarding to see the final product. I just wish canvasser liked me more and wouldn’t quit on me so often 🙁 Looking forward to some canvasser projects in the future!
