Fearing a Journey
I created the Scratch animation Fearing a Journey as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story that allows you to make the right decisions to lead a path, and at the end you will gain knowledge on what is right and wrong.
My story is about a princess that tries to run away because she is tired of being perfect for everybody. As she tries to run away, a group of monsters come and take her away because she was alone. The whole thing was witnessed by a boy, that even looks up the the princess. He has to decide on whether he wants to go save the princess, knowing that he will face his fears on the way. If he does go on to save the princess all the way, he will be able to be friends with her and maybe live in the castle. If he does’nt want to help her, then he missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime. The right decision will lead the boy to be happy.
My story was inspired by mainly from Aesop’s fables. I knew that most of his stories ended up with the reader learning a moral, so i tried to create on like his. Although my story is completely different from what Aesop would write, it was simple and hopefully did teach the player a moral at the end of the game.
I think I was successful in creating my story because i think that i have met all the requirements in making the story, as well as teaching the player a moral at the end. The whole point of the project was to tech the player something that will stick with them forever, and hopefully i did that. My moral was that if you do go over something little to do something big, it will pay you at the end. I think that the plot of my story did that. I am unsure about if the game is working properly becuase when i uploaded it and took a look at it, the charecters were speaking at the wrong time. But i think that if it is played right, the player will enjoy it.
