Hi there, I'm Rachel. I'm a 21 year old college graduate (I can finally say that!) who majored in computer science and math and I'm hella nerdy. I'm probably the biggest Avatar fan you will ever meet. I blog about my life, Avatar, Dragonlance, books, Jewish things, vegetarian things, and super cute animals (especially bunnies!) I love making new friends, so please message me if you want to talk! ^_^

This is a kinect game I made with a group this past semester that features some waterbending vs. firebending action. It was so much fun to make. I wanted to share. =)

Details:
The game was made using the Unity game engine and the Microsoft Kinect, with the software Zigfu (http://www.zigfu.com/) as a wrapper for the kinect interface inside of Unity. All programming was done in javascript and C#. I worked in a group of five people. Most of the work that I did focused on the user interface and the kinect. Another group member coded most of the gameplay interaction and backgrounds for the different levels. Two other group members worked on cleaning up the motion capture data that you can see used in the enemy movements, and the other group member did design work and sound effects (which you can’t hear in this video, but the room for the demo fair was so nosiy that they were hard to hear anyway!)

If you would like the contact information for any of us for inquiries about jobs and resumes, send me a message and I’ll give you the requested information.

Overall, this was a ton of fun to make and I wanted to share with all the Avatar fans who want a Kinect game. This is not professional and only has waterbending vs. firebending at the moment, but if I have time I’ll buy a kinect and work on it more this summer. And who knows—if we show enough support for the idea, maybe they can make an official game for this!

So for my group project for my mo-cap class we’re making an Avatar bending game and some of the transitions are sort of like the opening sequence

One of my group members sent us backgrounds she thought would be cool to use and when the group member responsible for doing those animations showed me the backgrounds and I saw they were the elemental symbols from The Last Failbender movie I was just

And she was like “but they’re so pretty/cool looking”

But as the resident Avatar fan I had to put my foot down. This was bigger than our project.

There are some lines you don’t cross.

But seriously this is beautiful.

In a recent blog post, Mike Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender, posted the following:


"While we were working on Book 1 of Korra, Bryan and I pitched a TV movie version of the search for Zuko’s mom to Nickelodeon. They weren’t interested in doing animated TV movies, and chose to pick up Book 2 of Korra instead."
Source: http://mikedimartinostory.com/2013/03/20/you-really-want-to-know-what-happened-to-zukos-mom/

While it is unclear from the context of the post why Nickelodeon was not interested in doing a TV movie of The Search, most fans strongly support this idea and would undoubtedly be willing to tune in in huge numbers and buy DVDs, making Nickelodeon a huge profit. It’s possible the reason that they did not pick up the idea is that they didn’t think it would be popular. Let’s show Nickelodeon how profitable picking up a movie about the search for Zuko’s mom would be and perhaps they will reconsider.

Note that this is a fan-made petition and that the creator of this petition has no affiliation with either Nickelodeon or the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Even though this probably won’t amount to anything, I figured it can’t hurt to try! Reblog this to help spread the world. =)

But seriously is anyone else up for petitioning Nickelodeon to do a TV-movie of The Search? They said they didn’t want to but maybe if they saw how popular the idea was they would go for it?
GUYS. THE COMICS ARE NOT AS BAD AS THE MOVIES. YOU ALL NEED TO CALM DOWN.

I can’t even BELIEVE people are making that comparison.

Please remember that Gene Yang collaborated with Bryke on this so nothing in the comics has not gone through them first. They are good writers, we know this, and they love their characters. They are not throwing stuff away.

I’m getting really tired of the Avatar fandom losing their shit every time there’s a plot twist or something that appears to be. First of all, in regards to the spoiler from The Search: 1) It’s not proven and if it is, 2) it’s not the end of the world. This freaking fandom gets trolled by the writers over and over and fall for it EVERY TIME. I’m maintaining a healthy amount of skepticism. For once the more insane the fandom gets the more rational I’m trying to be.

Maybe we’ll give it a week and people will calm down but yikes.

I just blacklisted all the tags related to The Search I can think of. If you people don’t tag your spoilers I’m going to be very upset
So I have a problem because The Search comes out in 2 days and since I’m in suburbia and I won’t have access to a car I don’t know how I’m going to be able to get it and read it before spoilers start showing up all over tumblr

I can either order it or buy it once I’m back in NYC but either way I won’t be able to get it in time.

I’m going to tumblr savior the heck out of it but if anyone posts any spoilers at all, instant unfollow, no questions asked. I care more about the Zuko’s mom subplot than Legend of Korra, so I’m not taking chances with this. Moral of the story: TAG YOUR SPOILERS
