How are other partners splitting up the Game On jobs? For example during the actual competition do you take turns building the game on the computer or does one person code and the other fulfill a support role? In training for it do both of you practice coding or does one of you memorize the rubric and provide creative input while the other codes?

Thanks

The way we do it is one person is the coder, and the other person provides other things such as overall game play, artistic drawings, a 2nd pair of eyes for bugs, etc.

Now, for Game On (noob here) is there a template people follow and try to get done ASAP to get the max points. Do you have a specific game in mind like a maze or something and just build the game around it, because I have no idea what process to do or to even aim for to get a lot of points and how I should organize things with my partner

In general, you try and have a basic idea of the type of game you want to make (e.g maze, pong, etc) before you go into the competition and you fit the theme to match that game by changing colors, titles, characters, etc. As for trying to maximize points - you just try to do the things on the rubric (which are, admittedly, sometimes vague) as well as you can.

I don't see much strategic value in the template game approach because template games hit the basic game components well but not so much depth of knowledge with the given topic. Put another way, it's easy to tell which teams learned to make one game and shoehorn it onto whatever topic they were given. It might work, and...it might not.

To agree, those games will never place top because changing a sprite to resemble a concept in the theme isnt legitamitely incorporating science

Game On is done in Scratch right? Is it possible to download Scratch and how much would it cost?
