I made a game for my daughter...

About six months ago my wife and I moved from the United States to Paris. The hardest part about the relocation was moving away from our 26 year old daughter, Autumn. The other day my wife suddenly said, "Do you realize that this will be the first time we haven't had an egg hunt for her on Easter morning?"

That's when it hit me: I can use Construct 2 to make an egg hunt game, using pictures of our old house! So I grabbed some photos from the real estate website, pilfered some egg and bunny images off the internet, grabbed some audio from a cheesy YouTube video, and put together a quick game:

When my daughter saw it Easter morning she said, "Awwww... Dad... you're going to make me cry!" Thanks to Construct 2 I made her day! (And her reaction made my day.) :-)

UPDATE: I made a new game for 2017. See my link at the bottom of this thread!

John Cutter, that was a really great idea you had. I've been throwing some ideas around for holiday themed games as well.
Thanks for sharing your story.

Easter was several months ago, but I this year I made a new Egg Hunt for my daughter! I didn't want to use our old house again, so I set this year's hunt in Autumn's favorite place on earth: Disneyland!

I was able to use most of my code from last year's game, and I found photos and YouTube videos for the backgrounds and audio. Took me a [long] day to finish it, with a few hours the next day to fix some bugs.

HOW TO PLAY:
    1. Find the five hidden eggs in each scene to automatically progress.
    2. You can zoom in with the mouse wheel, and click and drag to move the scene. (This game won't work on phones/pads.)
DISCLAIMER:
I wanted the game to be challenging, but I inadvertently made it way too hard. Some of the eggs are nearly invisible...

Here's the link, if any of you are interested: http://cuttergames.com/egghunt2a/
