Years ago, I had made a game using VisualBasic that we used in Kid’s church. It was a simple game that had a picture (unknown to the kids what the picture was) and had 16 numbered boxes in front of the picture. The idea was that a kid got to come up and pick one box to remove. Then we removed that one box and they had to guess what the picture was. The game worked pretty well. But I never made a backup of the game. Actually I never even compiled it. I just ran it from my laptop. Well that laptop ended up getting reformatted and I lost the game.
I’ve always thought about making a new version of the game. But I don’t use VB at all now, and I know it would be a steep learning curve to get up to speed again. So I just never got around to it.
A while back, we had started using some of Kid’s on the Move’s games that ran in ProPresenter. PP5 is very powerful and overlays graphics very well.. So I decided I would try to make my first game in ProPresenter 5. Following is a screenshot of the game being ran.
So from this screenshot you can see all 16 boxes on the game board. As you might guess, you simply click on a piece in the edit screen and hit delete. Then hit show and it will be removed from the presentation.
I plan to make a YouTube video on how to install and how to run the game.
If you want to play around with the game, you can download it from my public DropBox site:
Also if you want to customize the boxes, you can edit them in PhotoShop (I used CC6 version).
I would love to hear of any issues/successes with this game.
Here’s a link to the YouTube video where I show how to install and run the game in ProPresenter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LENd91B79s
