HuPa is a game designed by : Huub en Paul van Amelsvoort.
The purpose is to design a kind of family game. Not only meant for boys but also for girls.
Say for children from about 8 year's old.
The game is playing in The Hague en starts in Scheveningen.
Later on there could be other cities. It has to be 'open source' and the language has to be Dutch because there are already a lot of English games.
Description of the game
The game starts on the 'pier' in Scheveningen (see picture) and from there you can walk (move) in the virtual world.
The players have to do the following things :
Going to shops and hotels and restaurants.
Playing games in the game hall.
For developing using the next programming languages and tools :
Because I like it. It is free and gaming in Java
instead of C or other languages to proof that it's possible.
Part of Java, to design 3D environment. I have a lot of trust in the project Wonderland
This is the 'open source' project, to design for example 3d models.
Python used in Blender to make other formats.
Netbeans / Eclipse
The 'open source' development environment of Sun
and originally from IBM
(the two best for developing Java).
Other tools can be used like Paint, Filezilla, KompoZer and many others. For example I use my
keyboard for sounds.
- More than 20 years ago I bought my first computer. Always fascinated by games.
- Playing games but also to create games. Later on I make work of my hobby. Always want to know how games are made.
- Playing always games like Duke Nukem 3d, Quake 1-4 and some other shooting games.
- Than I discover that there was Jake2 a java bases version of Quake2 and it was 'open source'.
- After that I want to get involved with 'open source', and do some work to see how it works, and try to make my own game.
- Working for the government is also the motivation to do some work for everybody.
I my opinion there is after the introduction of the computer a lot of individualism raised so hopefully this project is a little bit the opposite by working together with different kind of people. Maybe a bit idealistic thought, but there is always the basket.
