I created the Scratch animation Baseball Problems as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story that has at least one decision that is either good or bad. Its a story that has a wrong decision and right decision. The point in making this animation is making a story that the gamer can actually decide what he wants to happen by making either the right or wrong decision.
My story is about two friends want to go to a baseball game. When one of the friends buys the ticket, the other realizes he has no money so he has to make the decision of either sneaking or getting a job and work for money. If he try’s to break in he goes to jail, from the jail you decide to stay in or sneak out. If you sneak out you escape and are never to be seen again, if you stay nothing happens. If he gets a job he goes back to the stadium. Then when he goes back to the stadium he realizes that he does not have money to buy food. So he can either wait it out or steal some. If you steal the food you get caught because a cop was watching and you get kicked out of the stadium. If you wait it out you catch a fly ball and meet Derek Jeter and get him to sign the ball.
I was inspired of making this animation by going to a lot of baseball games.
I think I was successful in creating my story because I met all the requirements of the project correctly and did everything my teacher told me to do. I think I was successful because I made my animation have to make 4 decisions when you only had to do one. By me doing all of the requirements and doing extra then I really had to do makes me thing I will get a good grade.
