My new book arrived today, hopefully I will learn a lot more about how to make games using Action Script 3.0 in Flash.
In Craft and media tech we were placed in to groups and given a brief to create a game concept based upon a book that we had read. The only book which really sticks in my head is Roald Dahl’s, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which i must have read to my three year old son about ten times in the last year or so. So, me and our group decided this was a good book to base a game upon and after lots of discussion and idea plucking we decided to base the game upon a character briefly mentioned in the original book. This character Charlotte Russe was the finder of a golden ticket, which turned out to be a fake. After being found out Charlotte becomes envious of the five winners of the golden tickets and embarks upon a mission to disrupt their trip around the factory by any means possible, so that she can claim the prize.

This is a floor plan of Wonkas factory that was designed within our group, it was based upon descriptions of the factory with Roald Dahl’s book.
