Survival of the Fittest, Hunger Games style!
We decided to focus on the skills that Katniss and the other tributes train so hard to improve. Because we wanted to do justice to the book and the qualities it celebrates, we chose to avoid trying to recreate a live-action, fight-to-the-death game with graphic content, as in Grand Theft Auto or the skill-based RPG gameplay of The Legend of Zelda. I would love it if someone could develop a Hunger Games video game! (I think the Wii would be the best system because you could use the Wii remote to sling arrows or even scoop into a lake to catch fish. There is so much more you could do with the Wii, but that's just my opinion!)
We wanted to focus on the trials that the tributes had to go through before entering the Hunger Games. And if you ask me, we hit the target with a flaming, gilded arrow! In our game (called Tribute Trials), you'll encounter scenarios where you're being chased by bees, or you just caught a fish but you're not sure whether it's poisonous or not. How would you react? Tribute Trials reminds me of the Worst-Case Scenario survival game, except that Tribute Trials has a huge twist. See if you can figure out what it is!
Your chances of survival are slim. You're going to have to be like the Daft Punk/Kanye West song and be "harder, better, faster, stronger."
