Angry Nerds was my Sophomore game project for an introductory game programming class. We were given the option of doing an educational game, and I designed a game inspired by Angry Birds to teach classical mechanics. The story was very minimal; you were a peasant in the land of Reddit and the evil king Lamar Smith passed the Stop Online Peasants Act, and you had to go destroy his castles with Death Star-like flaws in order to restore internet freedom to the land. It was a parody of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) that was a huge deal during the time this was in development. For this game, I was the lead designer and developer, and programmed all state management and menus. It was a fun take on learning classical mechanics that appealed to people that hated physics pencil and paper homework but needed help grasping the math.
