Helping Children Cross the Road Through a Game

ch7_game_3

First semester of Medialogy had the theme “Traffic Safety for Children”. Together with six other students, I researched this theme and we found that the current games aimed at learning children how to cross the road didn’t learn them how to do so from their own perspective. So we designed a 3D game in which you cross the road, seen from the height of a child. In order to test if the game worked, a prototype was created by modding Valve’s Source Engine through Garry’s Mod. The game was thereafter tested on children at the main library of Aalborg.
