Would You Help Him?
I created the Scratch animation “Would You Help Him?” as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story that teaches the reader good moral(s) in his/her life.
My story is about a robber that decides to rob a deli but faces the decision of helping the injured manager or ignoring his pleas for help and just robbing it.
My story was inspired by me. I looked out the window and saw some of my dad’s friends come out from the deli and that’s how the story came to me.
I think I was successful in creating my story because I fulfilled all the requirements- my story was interactive, the avatar would always say “Press Space to enter this door” and so forth. The player was able to make a decision at the end with two choices and with each decision came a distinct ending that either resulted in the player’s demise or a reward waited for him. However, the bump comes up with time. I think that the story was a bit less than 3 minutes.
