Working together with a sports oriented departament at my school. We plan to create a game that makes young children move and exercise more in a fun way.

Our plan is to make a Snake game that uses pressure plates as controls. There will be different game mechanics that promote exercise, ex. when you jump on a platform you go faster. In a team of 3 we will be using the scrum framework.

The game will be for 4 players. Each player will have their own area in which they can move. In each area there will be 4 pressure plates with arrows on them. Each of those platforms will be connected to the central unit (RaspberryPi) which will send inputs of the pressure plates to the browser with SocketIO. There also will be a bluetooth heart rate sensor connected to the central unit that is needed for measuring the player’s exercise rate. The browser will render the game using a HTML canvas.
