Mobile App Idea: The short version: an endless runner game. The long version: an endless runner game with the user as a car. There will be obstacles (crates, roadblocks, etc.) on the road that the car can maneuver around by swiping left/right, tilting, or pressing one side (I haven't decided yet) or jumping over it (tapping). The road may suddenly break (the car must jump over it) or end and the user has to turn right/left. The user can collect donuts (like coins) which boost their score. If the car collides with an obstacle, the game is over. The score, number of coins, and highest score will be displayed, along with the option to play again. Also, there will be additional cars milling around which the user can make their car jump onto; these also boost the score. With the height, the user can get more coins without needing to jump (double-jumps are not allowed). Another feature is different landscapes or backgrounds. Once Selene finishes learning her 3D modeling/rendering, she will help me create some 3D designs for this app including trees, a runner (rather than a car), and make it look more appealing. Competitors: The famous mobile endless runner games like Temple Run or Subway Surfer, but also games like Tower Run (if I use actual runners). However, this mobile app incorporates both ideas of stacking and endless running with obstacles and such. The graphics will be greatly improved upon once I use the models from Selene, but for now, I will do a prototype with cars. Target market: kids - young adults. People who 1) have a phone and 2) like playing games like Temple Run. Plan to reach out: Releasing it out steam or itch.io as well as the app store. Steam or Itch.io are big online gaming platforms which I would use to promote the app. The main plan was to add this game as a part of my spirits app, once I get the design aspects right. It would be 50% of the app since you can only physically find the spirits in SF, so globally, you can "find the spirits" in the game where they are all over the different scenes by stacking on top of each other with the other 50% being what I already have.
TECH GOES HOME: I am currently making a video to teach people how to use face time!
