Me and Benjamin Wertheim made a Pong game in Processing.

Notes: Some functions don’t work on OpenProcessing that do work in Processing.


Final Presentation

I will do my final presentation about: Game Studies, Processing and Arduino.

Game Studies:

I think people would be interested in Game Studies because if you know about Game Studies you can understand and describe a game, being brief and precise. A game consists of three main aspects: Narrative, Paida and Ludus. Narrative is the story the game has. Paida are the rules of the game or the gameplay. Ludus is the winning condition of the game or how you win the game. I like Game Studies because I can analyze and have a deeper understanding of games.


Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. I think people would be interested in Processing because in Processing you can create your own sketches and animations. You can do basic animations like this: http://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/296558 and much more in Processing. I like Processing because I like animating objects and making cool sketches.



Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. I think people would be interested in Arduino because it can be used in thousands of different projects and applications, and it is easy to use for beginners yet flexible enough for advanced users. I like Arduino because there is an endless amount of possibilities of things to do using Arduino.



Today we used Sploder. Sploder is a website where you can make your own free games online. It is an easy and more accesible way to make games.

This is a screenshot of a platformer game I made:



We had an assignment in which we had to create a game without having to use a dice, a board or cards. I came up with a game that I named “FFA RPS” or “Free-For-All Rock, Paper, Scissors”.


  1. Setup: Screen shot 2016-01-10 at 10.28.20 PM
  2. Play rock, paper, scissors with person in front of you, then with player on one side, and then with the other person. Take a step forward if you win a game of rock, paper, scissors.

Winning the game: To win the game you need to get to the center of the cross +. If 2 players get there at the same time, play another set of rock, paper, scissors.
