It’s Homecoming at GVSU this weekend and the theme is “Where’s Louie” (Louie is our mascot). A while back a few of us talked about creating a game to promote it, and it’s out!
I’ve helped with some similar projects, but this was the first one where I have done the vast majority of the programming. It was a fun challenge! The biggest issues were rendering tens of thousands of randomly generated sprites quickly, and also adding “lava” to the maps via SVG paths so that characters wouldn’t appear in odd places. (Get it? Don’t touch the lava!)
You can go to https://www.gvsu.edu/webteam/whereslouie to play it. I’d love if you let me know in the comments what you think of it or if you have any technical questions.
