Kanji Gakusei
« on: 30 Dec 2017, 18:54 »

Kanji are Chinese characters that are used to write the Japanese language. There are several thousands of them. All Japanese children have to learn about 2200 kanji at school. Gakusei (pronounced "gucksay") means student.

Help our little girl to finish her homework by finding the six required Kanji.



Once you have found the characters, it is YOUR task to write them in her notebook.
An animation shows the correct writing stroke by stroke. Can you write them in the correct order?

The game uses Besh's MOUSE GESTURE SYSTEM script module that I enhanced a bit to support kanji.

Concept, graphics and coding: cat
Music: raeff
Testing: raeff, Mandle, Stupot, Cassiebsg, selmiak, Cornelius, Moeka, Aika, Kanade


When you have finished playing the game, please share your screenshot with us! It should be located in C:\Users\<your name>\Saved Games\Kanji Gakusei\screenshot.bmp

Conratulations cat!

I will play the release version with my students!

@selmiak: The screenie for your longplay gives away one of the puzzle solutions. Maybe hide it or change it?

Well done, Creamy!

Thanks for the Let's Play, selmiak! As already noted, this is based on an older version. The released version has nicer graphics and an option to adjust difficulty when drawing.

after screwing up everything I can on the longplay video I uploaded a new version of it. Enjoy. Click it to see the difference like night and day...

Also I'm getting better at writing these kanjis (it that the plural of kanji?) the more I play the game  :-D
