my name is brendon and im currently working on a simple driving game. Below is some information relating to the game i hope you find it interesting.
Drivewell Driving School is based in Queensland Australia and im putting together a game for their website. The game originally was to simulate the roadways of the local area and although a great deal of work was done on this, it was in the end a little bit (very) ambitious. So i have now opted for a much smaller, track based game which will instead of providing a challenge through the controll and correct driving of the vehicles it will provide at the end of each race or lap a challenging road rules question relating to the Queensland Australia road rules(although this will be editable for other areas). The correct answers will provide the players a multiplyer to their score, upgrades etc. Incorrect ones may restrict the player from gaining access to the next level or to the upgrades, these are not set in stone yet, but the goal is to provide an insentive to learn the road rules correctly in a fun environment.
The game is being delivered via the web plugin. I will be making the game distributable via a small tag which webmasters will be able to place on their websites or which we will be able to use in email marketing, the short tag or script will pull the game from our site and thus keep the distribution simple for people on free hosting and personal sites. It will also mean the content in the distributed sites will be kept up to date as the game progresses.
I am seeking Comments, Suggestions and Contributions from those with the will and ability to help out a bit and bring this to fruition.
For those wishing to try the game or to help out its currently located (07/01/05) on the Drivewell website at http://www.drivewelldrivingschool.com.au/index.php?id=6,0,0,1,0,0
which is the games section of the site.
The non-exhaustive todo list:
2)Vehicles: add in scripting to change the colors and properties(for the addons, speed, etc) to save on game size.
3)Lots more small circuits.
4)Lap counter system.
5)Question delivery system. (could be in the game window or delivered externally on the webpage and passed to the game. Undecided as yet)
6)Lots of other things which i can’t think of right now and im sure there will be other great suggestions which will have to make it into the todo list also.
PS. thanks has to go to iconjunky for his original blend which is now the base to the game.
