What is a "game you have MADE in Scratch?" It is NOT just someone else's game you click to REMIX and put in your Scratch account without making any changes or modifications. It's a game you've either made by yourself or a game you've mixed / created with inspiration from others. It can be a remixed game! You need to add your own code and creativity to a Scratch project to call it "my own game" in our class.
