The following proposal has been approved:
Project Name: Berluskotchi
The following is a short description of the project:
* The project's mission and goals.
Berluskotchi is a variation of a customizable tamagotchi targeted to Java Mobile Phones. The goal is to have an entire line of different "creatures" living in your phone, differing in: animations, states and transitions, interactions, weapons. The difference between a classic
Tamagotchi and the Berluskotchi is in the game goal: while in the first you have to make the creature happy, in the latter you have to make it unhappy, possibly without killing it. The AI of the creature will be capable of making it smarter and smarter, forcing you to change your
tactics and strategies
The set of weapons you can use versus a creature will be downloaded from a web portal, plus customizations and other stuff: but the web portal will probably be a different project
The initial set of creatures wil consist of a subset of politicians, actors, sport people and worldwide VIPs in general.
* How to participate - accepted roles
No help needed at the moment: initial team will be of 5 members (already joined).
* Skills required to work on this project.
Experience in MIDP, Unit testing, AI.
