Dorothy’s Day Out: The Game (C++ and DirectX 10) at University Of Plymouth, Devon

Thought I would share with you my final year project at University Of Plymouth.

In Dorothy’s Day Out a player controls Dorothy, an elderly granny who decides to take her rage out on the rest of the world after being tormented by her local neighbours for over twenty years.

As Dorothy, you must battle through various neighborhoods to reach the local post office in order to collect the weekly pension – the quicker the destination is reached, the higher the score that will achieve. However, in the process a number of angry neighbours will be trying to stop Dorothy by using their walking sticks, mobility scooters or by throwing objects into the road.

The player will control Dorothy’s mobility-scooter from a third-person perspective (that positions the camera behind the mobility-scooter). The exact location of the camera is unknown, as the camera will be floating in the air just behind the mobility-scooter. As the player drives the mobility-scooter down the street, objects such as the houses and cars will start to appear and objects passed will be subsequently disappear.

Like what you see then, fancy a chat?

Testimonials

Dean recently created an excellent animated logo for my website, Bude & Beyond (www.budeandbeyond.co.uk). What I never realised at the outset was how much time, effort, discussion, creativity and dedication goes into producing a logo. After an initial discussion, Dean created many versions, in different colour schemes and formats, which he also animated. He sought appropriate feedback and went the extra mile to ensure that the colours and design were absolutely spot on. I was very impressed at his determination to get it right and to re-create and adapt until both he and I were both very happy with the final result.

So, I’d say Dean’s major strength is communication. I’m not IT-focused, but I appreciate a good-looking website/logo, so it really helps that he is able to discuss ideas in a friendly and accessible way, without over-use of jargon. He explains things well, and will interpret ideas in a client-focused way. He is extremely responsive, so wait times are very short. He listens to his client and creates ideas based on what he hears/understands. He checks all along the way (wording, colours, images, positioning) and will ask: what if we try this? He is also very open to constructive comments. Therefore, he provides plenty of guided choice.

I’m rather proud to now have a Dean Wronowski animated logo already in use on my social media and ready for my website (currently undergoing a major revamp). Dean’s designs are his trademark. Fresh, colourful and lively, they always try to encompass the nature of the product he is working with.

He is a remarkable talent which Bude is fortunate to have
