To create an interactive story using professor provided web-based framework.
To create a story for kids that is engaging, entertaining and one in which they can interact.
I began with thinking of a story that has a moral and can teach children some lesson that they should know. I went with a “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” theme, and I put a spin on it and created a similar theme and applied it to monsters. Monsters gave the unique ability to create original characters and assets.
After deciding on the story text for each page, I made story boards of the characters and scenes for the story. Illustrator was used to create all of the backgrounds and characters and convert them to svg format for easy animating. The svg’s was loaded and position.
