Study Videos – 

Tutorial – 

  1. Your next tutorial of this series is going to be, “Create A Story”
  2. As part of this tutorial we will build an interactive story that consists of two or more characters who converse with each other with a story line in the background.
    1. Think of yourself as a movie script writer and producer where you are in charge of the script for a movie and then producing it.
    2. You now have the responsibility to write the script which includes two or more scenes with two or more characters in the scene.
    3. The characters in your story are going to have to converse with each other as they move through the enchanted forest. You will have at-least two scenes in this movie.
    4. Each scene starts with a new background. You are free to design additional scenes which move your characters to different location with a twist to the story.
    5. You will have the ability to customize the characters positioned on a background, play music, converse with each other and get your characters to move around as required.

Challenge – 

  1. Once you are done implementing the game why not try out some additional challenges. Here are some ideas –
    1. Let’s play a musical tune as your characters converse with each other.
    2. Try changing the background to suggest story over when the the story has come to an end.
  2. Speak with the other kids in class and ask them for ideas on what else we might implement to challenge ourselves.
