We are making a mobile game that is a 2d-platformer. This will be an adventure game where the player has to survive in a procedural-generated world where they survive off of collectibles and attempt to score as high as possible.

When it comes to high-level features:

  1. Procedural-generated levels, so every game you start will have a randomly generated world.
  2. The game will continually scale, so as long as you are alive the map will continue to generate, and stops when the user dies.
  3. Movement mechanics will involve user-skill, so the user will have to make the correct move in order to continue surviving.
  4. There will be an achievement and stat-tracker, so the user's achievements and statistics they've accumulated will be tracked and stored.

The platform that the game will be created on is Unity. We are targeting are mobile operating systems, so iOS and Android.

Our objective is to provide efficient computational solutions to better analyze genomic data, i.e., protein structure predictions based on torsion angles (phi-φ and psi-ψ)of previously classified proteins from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) to model a given/unknown amino acid sequence considering a rolling window size (k-mer). K-mer, where k is a given number of amino acid fragments of the user’s interest.

The idea of Cadi is to take a dating app like Tinder and make it for internships. In essence, you would have a college student's name pop up and then a limited number of characters or fields would pop up. Recruiters could then just swipe through people based on their certain search preferences(major, year, skills, etc). Our idea revolves around the ideology of "they don't spend more than 3 seconds looking at your resume" from that we put the 3 seconds worth of information on the app. They can then choose to match with a said college student or not based on that condensed info. Once a match is found they can message you or you can message them. Along with, after matching your full resume will show up to give them even more detail. We will be using Android native Java to build this app.

Every large virtual meeting nowadays often comes with one major caveat: only one user can talk at a time. Our application will allow users to join a two-dimensional space in which their camera feed is their avatar, and they can move themselves around the space to speak with friends. With the COVID-19 pandemic in mind, this app can effectively simulate the real-life large gathering experience. We are constructing this app using to handle net synchronization, for video communication, and express.js to handle API calls.

Our Grocery Budgeting and Recipe app scans barcodes of various grocery items and asks if you want to put in your "To get" list or if you want to know the price of the scanned item. The app will be capable of keeping track of a weekly grocery budget ensuring the user doesn’t go over the budget and is optimized to save money and convenience. Along with that it will also tell you the prices of the items in the your "To get" list from different grocery store. The app keeps track of the expiration dates of the items that you bought, and you can set the reminder to notify you before they expire. It will suggest possible recipes from the items that are about to expire in near future. You can store the items expiration list by scanning the receipt or can manually add them. App also lets you select the items you have and give you the recipe the can be made from the selected items.

Parenting101 will be an Android and iOS App that provides parents with information, tricks, and tips to effectively discipline and raise healthy, productive, happy children. Joseph P. Boland, our client, believes that "most problems in the world like lying, stealing, cheating, greed, corruption, aggression, violence, narcissism, arrogance, depression, anxiety, anger problems, lack of compassion, lack of empathy, lack of motivation, bullying, poor self-esteem, underachievement, and many more can be traced back to poor or ineffective parenting.". App users will watch informational parenting videos, browse pages with information, receive weekly newsletters with tips, and take short quizzes to check their understanding. To tie everything together, Parenting101 will feature a "choose-your-own-adventure" section where parents can receive customized plans to handle situations. These plans will contain conversation guides, links to other resources, and give parents the ability to send customized messages to their children with videos and resources tailored to that situation.

Our app allows the user to scan their receipts and automatically keep track of what they spend their money on each month. Essentially the way it works is simple. All a user has to do is scan a receipt from their purchase and our app will be able to automatically categorize the type of purchase made as well as add the amount they spend to their running total for the month. The OCR library we plan to use in order to read the receipts properly will be tesseract.js.

We also hope to implement a budgeting tool that will allow the user to set goals for how much they want to limit their spending in certain category and once they start to approach their set goal they will receive a notification.

Our target for this app is to both support iOS as well as Android users. In order to achieve this we will be using the Ionic framework to create a user experience that will work well on both platforms.

The team has decided to develop a single player 2D rogue-like crafting action game themed around an alchemist trapped in Dante's Inferno. The player will have to battle their way through multiple levels and rooms while using materials found throughout the level to quickly craft weapons and armor to defeat the levels of hell. The player will manage various resources in order to solve each room. Players can potentially obtain rare resources which make more powerful weapons/armor/items, and they will have to decide where to use them. Completing extra rooms may be a risk/rewards system to obtain more resources. Trading lives for rare resources, giving up a life for upgrades or better item components. The player will also have to decide initially their class which will offer different perk trees.
