The day before yesterday we told Caine, the boy who created a cardboard arcade in the studio of his father . And today, another child is a source of fascination throughout the world. This is Dylan Viale, a boy of 10 years as anyone else who wanted to share with his grandmother his passion for video games. The problem is that they are blind.
But that did not stop Dylan. Using the Game Maker (eye, used the trial version) designed a game that his grandmother could play, guided only by sound.
It took a month to create the game, but finally succeeded. The aim of Quacky’s Quest is to collect all the diamonds in a maze full of spiders and dynamite. To advance, Grandma Sherry must be guided by the sound of diamonds to take them and if you approach a spider, a different sound will alert you. When you hit a wall, the sound will be different again, prompting you to move in another direction. This provides an enjoyable challenge, who plays without feeling overwhelmed.
The final version of the game does not include images. It’s just a black screen.
So it was that Dylan created the game in just one month. Needless to say, won first place in the science fair and now everyone wants a copy of Quacky’s Quest.
Because of this, his father expected to consider entering the world of game design.
“This opened the eyes of Dylan to the possibility of becoming a game designer. Of course he always says he wants to be a cop, a construction worker or a garbage truck driver … I really do emphasize the fact that should give you a look at this and see if you enjoy it as much as it has done so far “.
Undoubtedly, this is a very moving story that will motivate more secure one. Share your opinion!
