This year’s theme is “What Makes a Hero?”

Think about who your heroes are, and what makes them special. What calls a person to act heroic, or take a job that requires heroism on a daily basis? Is it part of human nature or is there some other force that drives them? How do you define “hero?” How does someone become a hero?

Tools of the Trade
Create your game the way you like using Scratch, GameMaker, Unity, Inform, Stencyl, Inkscape, Unreal, any other tool, or your own custom code!
