Game: The Marvelous Megaphone
In a world oblivious to the issues that affect our daily lives, your objective as a player is to go out and spread awareness to people in your community as well as other areas. Unfortunately, your dilemma is that you are afraid of being unheard since you are only one person; your thought process being that one small person cannot make big changes. Out of the blue, you're approached by a strange, magical man who gives you a magic megaphone that will help you get people's attention. After the man disappears, you go out and begin spreading your message of awareness to those around you. You will meet various people; some easy to inspire, others not so much. With your megaphone, navigate around the screen and spread your message to passerbys. Those who are inspired by your words follow you on your journey and allow you to gather even larger crowds. You have a limited amount of time to rally people for your cause, get as many people as you can before the clock runs out. When you reach the end of the game, your magic megaphone breaks. Distraught by this, you seek out the magic man for help. He appears once again and as you being to explain yourself, the magic man chuckles. He lets you in on a secret. The megaphone was never magic. The magic is within the player. Change happens when you take the first step, even if you are only one person. No matter how big or small, you can make a difference in the world around you. All you have to do is find a way to make your voice heard. Once you accomplish that, the rest falls into place and you create a pro-active community that works together to make a difference. Controls: Move around the screen using either the arrow buttons or the W, A, S, D buttons. To bring up the mic, press the K button. To put down the mic and save battery, press the L button. To spread your message, approach a person and press the J button. Try to get groups of people together!
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…
Bigger Picture: The game touches on a political, environmental or social issue.
