Daily Thoughts 102: Newt Scratchmander

Author's selfieToday my focus has been mostly on my classes. I have several assignments due today. Since I worked yesterday, I have today off. It’s important to have a balance between work and everything else.

I spent the first part of the morning (after my walk and sketching) working on a Scratch game, Demystifying Dewey. It’s a simple Dewey-based matching game with a simple gameplay mechanic. Different badges are awarded at the end, based on the player’s score.

I spent more time than necessary on the assignment. I created custom animations and sounds. As my first attempt at using Scratch, I think it went okay! I would have loved to have this sort of thing when I was a kid.

Daily Sketch Challenge

I’m calling this guy Newt Scratchmander.

Daily Thoughts 100: Wonder Woman

Author's selfieI’ve been wrapped up today working on a Scratch game for class. I’m doing a simple game focused on learning Dewey. The better the player does, the better badges they get. I have the basic functionality mostly in place but have a little more to do still. I probably spent too long creating custom animations, graphics, and sounds.
