DIG 2500C - Milestone 3

Here is my third Milestone in my Interactive Design class--a game! The point of this assignment is a brief introduction to ActionScript 3.0 in Flash. The object of the game, as outlined by the project requirements, is:

The success scenario of the game is for the player to navigate the "rooms" to reach the "treasure room", gain the "treasure", and return to the entrance to exit the space.

Also, the losing scenario is for the player to enter the "monster room". One requirement of the game is that the "paths" to the "treasure" and the "monster" are already predetermined. That is, the professor told us exactly which path should go to the "treasure room", and which should go to the "monster room". I won't reveal that, however, because I would like people to play it for themselves! To try out my game, go here:

Oh, this wasn't a requirement, but I decided to have my game match the theme of my website, because I want to try to add the game as a feature of my final product.

The assignment isn't due until Friday, so I'd love some feedback! Thanks!

DIG 2500C - Milestone 2

I'm turning in my second Interactive Design Milestone tomorrow and I think it's finally done! The basic assignment was to get the layout done for the entire website, but nothing is active yet (no buttons, no links, etc.), so right now it's basically and animated slide show. Also none of the items are up long enough to read all of the text, because the focus of this stage is the buttons and actually having different sections, not the rest of the content. NOTE: Part of the assignment was to show the buttons in all of their states (i.e. the different ways they look when you mouse-over, click, etc.). The result is a bunch of images all flashing at once and it looks crazy and seizure-inducing! If you get dizzy or sick easily, you may not want to watch this for too long...
