A platform game with map that unlocks books! And the books are part of the gameplay, because it is through them that the characters gain new "wings", a metaphor with the concept of the "Wings of the Imagination" that the books can grant us. This game innovates by blending literature and games in a harmonious way, like existing platforms for children's audio content.
Alados is a side-scrolling, jumping, auto-runner game with a subgenre of action and adventure. The game will be aimed at mobile devices (Smartphones and tablets) iOS and Android that should be played in the horizontal position. The avatar runs from left to right automatically and it's up to the player to direct him to avoid obstacles, climb walls, direct jumps and flights, collect mini-books to enable bonus stages, access new maps, unlock books in the library, and gain new wings with more skills.
During the game, the player encounters a myriad of enemies, cliffs, floating platforms, creeks, among other obstacles. To divert them, the user must jump or fly.
Every time the avatar jumps a small translucent wing appears on his back. You need to collect a specific number of mini-books to enable the library and gradually enable classic books of world literature. With each enabled book, the character gains a different "wing" that allows the user to acquire different abilities like jumping intensity, other jumping styles, acrobatics and temporary immunities. All children playing Alados collect at least
a book in the game and reach the end of the phases will level and earn at least one star, but only those who collect all the books will be entitled to 3 stars. These stars will enable the upcoming maps and bonus phase opening with mini-game.
The Library * will be composed of classic books of world children's literature and will be composed of books in the public domain, and could become a great children's literary platform. The curation ** of these books will be carried out primarily by thinking of large children's books in the public domain.
The goal is to grab as many mini-books as possible, complete the level and thus capture new maps and books from the library. In addition, it is necessary to divert the Moths (a sort of giant moth), the Alienated Soldiers, the Head-Square Neighbors, and other book-sucking obstacles. Every 5 levels completed, you have to face a big enemy so you can move on the map. In all, 50 stages, 5 maps and 10 books are planned in this first stage.
* For children who have not yet been literate or are in the literacy stage, the books can be read by the parents or the "Read For Me" key is activated which will narrate a summary of the story.
* * The books will be chosen and will have versions adapted according to the target age group of the game.
The Winged GAME project was inspired by the book Menina de Asas by Brazilian writer Pablo Morenno, and conceptual arts by Brazilian illustrators Walther Moreira Santos and Thiago Laurentino.
