Economics Island


  • Posts: 9
I teach economics, and I'm trying to learn Stencyl to gamify some of the more common economics subjects. You can see the latest iteration of the game here:

It has been fun going through the tutorials and learning about what Stencyl is able to do. I took C++ years ago in high school, and code for statistics packages, but this is definitely different. The toughest part is learning how to use Stencyl efficiently, it seems there are many different ways to get X done, but there are better and worse ways. I am still learning to take full advantage of behaviors, lists, and attributes to automate some of the repetitive codes.

Plans moving forward include: Make the continue game button do something, add a credits to give CC attribution, add more economic concepts after the gorilla encounter.

Any feedback welcome!
