This demo was made for a school project. The project was to teach us about working with outsourcing. The project had us create a game that would be made for the Iphone platform. I competed against fellow students. I had to give a demonstration of the game in front of students and faculty. The votes were placed by students and a few of the professors. Ultimately I came in second place. I got 13 votes with the winning game receiving about 15.
The demo allows for players to take care of a single goldfish inside of a ten gallon tank. The player is able to decorate the tank with the decorations given. The money mechanic is not in the demo. The demo's purpose was just to show off that everything I was talking about was possible. I did all the art for it. Ideally it would all be really well done 2D or 3D assets. My friend Jeremy Lobdell helped me with a lot of the programming. We're not programmers but he has a better understanding of ActionScript than I do.
Certain Decorations are part of a theme or set. Having a complete set of decorations in your tank can have positive benefits on your fish.
If the tank is not kept clean is is susceptible to tanks pests such as invasive plants and parasites.
