What is the game? My game takes place in a forest that is subjected to Deforestation. The aim of the game is to stop the loggers from destroying the forest and to teach children of the importance of keeping trees and forests intact. Why create this game? This game is being created so that children can learn about deforestation in a fun and interactive way. Where does the game take place? This game takes place in Paradise Forest; this is a large forest full of wildlife. Game Concept
Monk is a monkey that has lived in Paradise forest all his life, he has dedicated his life to training under marshal arts that where passed on by his ancestors. Meanwhile the millionaire tycoon Tobias has arrived at the forest with his team of loggers. His plan is to cut down all the trees and sell the wood, he is willing to destroy the forest for his own personal gain. However little does he know that a certain forest resident is going to put up quite a fight to stop him. Background Story
What does the player control? The player will control a Monkey that lives in the forest and is trying to stop the forest from being destroyed. Lee Sheldon Wrote :”The player-character can have his mobility affected in any number of ways. It can slow him down or speed him up. He may be able to swim or not. Not only do these kinds of choices suggest gameplay, they obviously are a part of the physical dimension of a character.” Therefore I will need to add a hazard to affect the main character. How many characters are there? There are 3 main characters they are: MONK- He is the hero of the game, a monkey that has lived in the forest and trained under many martial arts. Unfortunately Monk cannot swim so has to be careful when travelling the forest. LOGGERS- These are the generic loggers that will keep trying to cut down the forest and stop monk by any means. TOBIAS THE TYRANT- He is a millionaire tyrant who just cares about money. He wants to destroy the forest and sell the wood. He doesn’t care about the wildlife or the forest. This is the main boss of the game. If monk manages to stop him the game will be over. Overview of Gameplay
What is the main focus? The main focus of the game is to save the forest. This can be done by stopping the loggers from cutting down trees, by planting new trees and by ultimately beating Tobias the millionaire tyrant boss. What is different about the game? The different with this game is that it gives an important lesson to children about the importance of keeping our forests intact. Overview of Gameplay

Objects RIVERS Monk is unable to swim, so must avoid the water. CUT DOWN TREES These trees will be obstacles that monk will need jump on and over SEEDLINGS These will be powerups that allow Monk to harness the power of nature
Time Trees planted Health Player Enemy Level no. Hazard Power Up
Power UP When monk finds a seed within the level he will automatically pick it up. But this is only half the task, he must then find a mound of earth and press “T” to plant the seed. This act of selflessness allows Monk to harness the true power of nature and become invincible for 10 secs. GOING GREEN!!
