Recently the game development slowed down as I'm the only one contributing to the project, and we needs to rise some money to finish this game, and hire graphic designer and programmer to make a port of the game to windows.
since this project is in the public good, I decided to try crowd funding it, you can contribute by visiting
The Link to the indiegogo campaign (similar to the popular Kickstarter).

If you help fund us, you will receive the following exciting rewards! (based on number of dollars funded)
* You will receive Post card from Morocco with Thank you message :) .
* You receive a complete game on CD In addition to post card :)
* complete game on CD In addition to post card + your name inside the game credits and in the website (with your permission)!
But the most important reward is the feeling of beign part of this great cause and helping saving a child life, priceless!

Any amount donated in excess of our funding goal will be donated to humanitarian NGO to help landmines victims.

1 What is EvitToys?

it's a 3D educational video game for children, to learn about danger of landmines
and cluster munitions, by playing inside a virtual world and learning to recognize them and avoid them.
the child will also learn signs that indicate dangerous area. Which make the child adopt safe behaviour
when faced with similar situation in real life.
I hope through playing and learning with this software, it will contribute to saving children life in countries affected by war.
more details about educational theory behind it here:

2 How to play

2.1 Navigation

You can navigate through the virtual world by using keyboard arrow keys and mouse:

keyDescription

UP KEYMove forward
DOWN KEYMove backward
LEFT KEYSlide left
RIGHT KEYSlide right
SPACE KEYJump up
MOUSEUse mouse to choose a direction
and keyboard to move forward


2.2 Buttons and doors

Some doors are closed, to open them and access new areas, you need to press red button near the door.


2.3 Unexploded ordnance and mines

To progress in the game and discover new secret areas, you need to avoid getting near mines because they explode
and will hurt you. you can avoid them by watching them closely in the museum, and by staying away when you see danger sign.


2.4 The museum

is found in beginning of the game, it is the only safe place where the child can get close to mines and see them and remember their shape
as he need to avoid getting near them later in the game.


2.5 Purple diamond

You need to collect all purple diamond that you can find, every one give you more health and help you to survive and continue playing.
the diamond is only thing you need to collect in the game and being choosed as color purple is rarely used in military on in nature and
shape cannot be confused with explosives. so the child will not look for them or confuse them with dangerous object in real life .

2.6 For Developers

It's not mentioned in the help but you need to type in "map level1" to get it to start. Also, it's missing "progs/flame0.mdl". I just took flame2.mdl & copied/renamed it.

I'm doing the dev under Linux maybe on windows there is a bug as it should begin with main map "start" without typing "map start".
level1 was not for playing it's just a small level for experimenting..

Good idea, indeed.

I see only one problem: sometimes it's hard to see what form the object has, which is probably one of the most important things in this mod. (for example: Moddb.com).

Can you make borders (like black lines) in the texture so it'll be easier to recognize where the edges are and what is the form of the object/mine? It probably should look like a little like wireframe (http://www.moddb.com/mods/evil-toys/images/various-3d-models-of-mines#imagebox), but without many of the lines that are not important.

Thanks for pointing that, actually those pictures are just concept art and displayed in wireframes to show how they are modeled, but they are not shown in that way inside the game... I'll upload more screenshots

Tibo Software would probably get a tad upset if they heard of this. (I'm not dissing this.)

Wow, a pretty good idea. Will you be sending it anyone in particular, like charities or organisations in the countries?
UNICEF and War Child International come to mind.

Good idea, I didn't know about War Child International, but I prefer to advance more in the project and write a more detailed game design document to convince them. There is also MAG, HALO Trust humanitarian landmine clearance agency
