About this project

Project Features:

Several different colors (Now with pink!) that alternate between on and off when touched. If the user wants blue, green, and pink, so be it!

Choice of effects that includes, fountain, rain, and shake!

Change the background color between several pastel colors that work with the colors of the particles.

Different Shapes to choose from for your particles that range from Bubbles, to Hearts, to Arrows!

Backstory:

As a semi-new parent, sometimes I need a distraction for my son while I take care of the necessities, like cooking or cleaning. I have decent programming knowledge and decided to combine this with a game design software I use to make this program, "Particles for Kids", for him to play with.

After showing it to multiple people, kids and (usually drunk) adults alike, I found out that it's a fun to for everyone!

What I'm trying to do with this kickstarter campaign is gain traction and recognition to make this project successful on the marketplace. I'm also trying to make it accessible to all platforms, as I found it it's not free to publish applications. 

I've posted a quick video of how it works and displayed most of the features accessible. I'm currently looking for and working on additional features that might make it more fun to play with!

As a means to help gain interest in a genre of video games, I'll be putting in 10% of the proceeds from this Kickstarter into the "Extra Life Charity". I think encouraging kids to play and make choices in games is a great means for them to develop character. Making apps and games is my means of creating tools for kids (and sometimes adults!) to help them interact and learn.

Risks and challenges

This is a very low risk project. My primary goal is to gain knowledge of the application, but also fund the ability to publish across all mobile platforms.

The biggest challenge is the development of the app itself, but I'm finding that figuring out how to put it on the marketplace is difficult on its own.
