Life is a game and today is your turn.
Calendar Game is a calendar inspired by the mechanics of a board game. As a basis, I took the fields for the game, which work like calendar sheets. Each month is a playing field with cells-days. Every day you open a cell and complete a task.
12 months of the year, 12 fields, 12 global problems. This interactive calendar is dedicated to global issues. War, crime, ecology, racism etc — are the main story of this calendar. But this is not just a calendar, it’s created for interaction, so user will not only learn information about global problems, but also join the battle. In my calendar the global problems of humanity are monsters. The player’s task is to defeat all 12 monsters by fighting them every day.
The monster and the player have a certain number of characteristics. During the game, the player performs actions and earns and loses points of energy, success and health, which are needed to defeat the monster. The more points — the higher the chance to win. At the beginning of each game u draw the monster on the first window and then game begins.
Before creating the design of the game calendar, I developed the identity constants. I use the grayscale color palette to set a serious mood — there is enough fun and playfulness inside the tasks, so it is important to pay attention to the fact that the problems are really serious.
My graphic tools in the calendar are a pattern with dice and hand-drawn icons, which I use not only in the game, but also on the packaging of the calendar — box.
