WHAT I NEED DEVELOPED:
A 'map location hunting' + crossword game generator for an educational website using Google API. The game generator will have a few components:
1. Easily allow the game creator to select random locations on Google Maps and then store them as images. The player would have to find where in the world the location is and, when they do (i.e. when they match their map to the picture of the random location), they unlock hints/questions to the crossword puzzle ... making them appear below the crossword puzzle.
2. The game creator would also be able to create their own crossword puzzle, selecting what hints/questions get unlocked when players find the locations with the map hunt.
3. To develop with program in such a way that we would be able to add other inter-connections b/w the map-hunting game and the cross-word puzzle as it progresses.
4. Once the program is developed, we will be able to easily design our own map/crossword games and put them on our website for our thousands of customers to use. The program would need to be developed in a dummy-proof type manner so we could do this. Our 5 staff members who create the crossword puzzles have ZERO programming skills and they will be the ones using this program.
The main objectives of this project is to create a fun-looking and effective game interface for the players/visitors, and to make game-creating and uploading process as simple as possible for our staff.
Would like to talk with developers over the phone about project when needed (so much faster than typing all the time). Winning bidder would take our pen/paper blueprints and develop an alpha model for testing, then - after feedback/review - would make adjustments for the final product.
