I created this video for AVERT to promote AVERT’s online AIDS challenge game, which I created using processing.
The animation was also mainly created with processing, using the OPENGL and physics library. Then their was some “montage” in After Effects to put all those animations together. The sound was put together using Live.
The AVERT AIDS Challenge is a educational puzzle-quiz type game where you are a red smooth snake. You have to collect letters in the right order to answer some AIDS question while escaping baddies. You can collect bonuses to make yourself invisible, freeze the baddies, multiply your points and few more. While going through the levels, there will be more baddies that will get more aggressive, the questions will get more specific and the snake longer. The controls are simple, the snake follows your mouse. No clicks, no keyboard and a cool smooth movement.
You can play this game on AVERT’s website in the game section. Even if I wish I could have had more time to develop this game, it’s still a pretty good game for a game coded and designed by one person. The game was entirely created using processing with the traer.physics, minim library and a home-made collision function ( + a bit of maths’ magic ) from Rob Noble. All graphics were designed in Illustrator and Photoshop and the music in Ableton Live.
The game uses a back-end interface so AVERT can change the questions/answers and in-game phrases. This interface displays Stats and Hi-scores table. All php, database and interface was done by Karl Rixon.
