Babel Blox

In the land of Shinar, the people are building a tower to elevate themselves to the level of God. Take on the role of God, and scramble the language of the people and scatter them on the earth! Use twitch-style skills to recognize different languages and stop blocks from being added to the construction of the tower. Choose from a variety of languages to use, and get the people separated! In case it wasn't already obvious, this game was inspired by the story of the Tower of Babel in the Book of Genesis. While I didn't learn a whole lot in terms of programming while making this game, it was definitely fun to be able to sit down and just make the game without too much hassle of, 'Now, how am I going to do this?' Google Translate ended up being the most used tool in the overall development of it, I think. But it was also fun to be able to make a game based on the Bible, which is something I had wanted to do for quite awhile. As a side note, isn't it amazing that a story that has less than 250 words can inspire an entire game, all be it small-ish?
