Elevator Pitch

Games can teach us that we have options for how we behave and that our behavior has consequences.

Style

Side scroller platformer with a social responsibility message to resist peer pressure.

Venue

Medieval High School

Player’s Role

The player must resist peer pressure(potion pushers) and get his fellow students away from the bullies by running and jumping around the school with great agility and by making responsible choices.

Characters

Hero/Student Bully Bullied Distressia Calvin Uncool Mentors Resource Officer Faculty Potion Pushers

Beginning Status of the game:

Camera tracks down. Showing the top of a castle first. A bell tolls.

Camera tracks down over the face of the castle and pulls back to reveal our hero heading down the path and disappearing into the castle gate.

Then a horse drawn carriage arrives with fumes emanating from it, and as it comes to a stop beer steins and potion bottles with vapors fall out of the half open doors.

L.A.I.R is stamped onto the screen one letter at a time in a D.A.R.E. look alike typeface… Learn About Influence Resistance appears underneath in a sweeping fade transition. Hold the frame and fade to black.

Fade In. The great hall of the Castle, it’s lined with castle stuff, big chairs, stone pillars. long tables hanging candelabras, , windows with mullions https://www.pitt.edu/~medart/menuglossary/mullion.htm See: https://tinyurl.com/y9k2wyyq

The very moment we are on screen, our character is shoved to the ground by some students, the main bully of the map steals our hero’s hat/helmet/hair/spellbook/math homework.

“Fiend! That’s my , give it here!” our little person says

The bully responds “Tis mine now, serf. Thou has no chance to regain thy property. I scoff at thee. Ha!”, all the other bullies nearby giggle. Main Bully runs off through the map while our character picks himself off the floor. Some others appear and he gets knocked down one or two more times, the other bully’s just laugh as they rush past. They knock some other people down too.

The other people will give our player a message like “Someone should tell thy mentor” and “An Officer of the court would be displeased about this, I’m sure”, a “A scholar would know what to do.” and “There’s been so much unrest since the school band incident that we are never speak of” “Shhh” “Shhh”

The speaking characters don’t interact after this and the player is left to travel to the right where the screen will follow them.

Ending Status of the game: (What must occur for the game to be over, win or lose) The player must walk, run, and jump, from room to room of the castle/school over pitfalls, dodging falling debris, not getting into physical contact with the bullies or potion pushers, rescue the bullied, contact a teacher who follows the student to the next screen, they have to jump around to reach the resource officer, and then the trio all reach the Bully Boss. The map ends with stern words and then the bullies are embarrassed by defeat and detention in the dungeon.

Finally, at THE END: A great feast all the bullies are friendly and helpful in orange uniforms, serving food, tooting horns, playing harps. A big table of food, everyone is there having fun with the hero.
