Gallop! The Game
For Rufus Butler Seder’s best-selling book Gallop!, we were challenged to design a gameplay experience that would integrate the enchanting scanimation feature in a meaningful and fun way that would delight toddlers and preschoolers.
After understanding the mechanics of the scanimation feature and working with the production requirements, we integrated a classic paper-cut, latch technique to turn a miniature scanimation book into a randomizer. Open the door, what do you see? A turtle? Move the turtle along the path.
Watching young toddlers and preschoolers pretend to be the winning animal at the end of the game.
While working at and with Discovery Bay Games, Marisa led concepting and game design for the Gallop! license.
