We are working on a prototype for an interactive survey/story app.
The idea is to develop a template with Flash Actionscript 3 (possibly AS2), that we can alter and further developed as we go. We have little experience with AS3 but have an ok understanding of as2 and flash in general.
The prototype should only be able to deploy as a flash file, however, the plan is to fully develop the app for IOS and Android once we are satisfied with the prototype. So writing the actionscript with AIR in mind does not hurt.
The idea is that the user controls a character through a number of scenes, in which he is faced with a variety of multiple-choice events. On the way the main character meets none-playable characters and objects. In order to progress the user needs to select the answers most likely to represent how he/she feels about the problem at hand. This is done under pressure from a timer. The choices made will affect the following scene and events presented later in the story. Best example of this would be in the game “The Walking Dead” by Tell Tale Games.
WHAT IS TO BE DELIVERED:
The template should consists of 10 scenes with 3 locations and 4 characters as can be seen in the provided script. The dialogue-Tree System should be fully customizable to fit the outline of the project.
We will provide some “dummy” graphics with simple animations for the characters and locations and objects.
We have provided some ideas how to structure and organize the setup in order to make the template easy to expand and use minimum resources. It might be that there is a better way to structure it to fit our needs, if so you are welcome to come with suggestions before we accept the bid.
It is very important that the code is commented in english. The idea is that we can expand the prototype based on the template created.
Please read/look through the provided files before bidding on the project and please don't hesitate to ask question if there are any unclarities.
