Watch more in the video! TutoTOONS: Hi, Weronika! Tell us something about yourself. Weronika: Hi! I live in Poland, I am 20 years old and I’m drawing for about 6 years now. I treat it more like a hobby than my job. And what about game creation - did you have game development experience before starting to work with us? I did not have any experience with game development. Working with TutoTOONS was my first project like that. What’s your game about? I was creating a game about making donuts. In this game, the player can create sweets in various ways and decorate them as he or she likes. What was the most fun part of the whole game making process? I love creating characters, so I had a lot of fun designing the girls and their pets. And what was the most challenging when creating your first game? I think that the most challenging part was making all the final details. It was quite hard to create all scenes perfectly. How much time did it take to create this game? I was working with this game for about 3 months. But it was not a full-time job. I also had a few little breaks in the meanwhile. What, in your opinion, is the most important thing in game development? I think that the most important thing in game creation is knowledge about game builder possibilities. If you know how you can use the program and what effect you want to achieve, you can do almost everything. If you had to give a tip for those who just started creating their first game with TutoTOONS, what would be? Be patient. Even if things do not go right, you cannot just give up. Take a small break, and try again. Also, do not be afraid of trying new things. Not everything may be achieved but it is always good to try. Do you plan to make more games with TutoTOONS? Unfortunately, I do not have enough time to take another project with TutoTOONS now but maybe in the future I will make more games. Describe TutoTOONS in one sentence. TutoTOONS is created to bring the joy for all children and make them happy with their games. :) Nice! Any final thoughts? I am really happy about being able to work with TutoTOONS. I have more experience now and I learned a lot of new things. Thanks you for your answers! Time to make and bake yummy & magical “Fairy Donuts”!

Levina: Hello! My name is Levina but people may know me as Vi, I’m from Indonesia. Currently, I’m studying in 3D Animation (master’s degree) and I also work as a freelance illustrator. My scope of work typically is creating 2D illustrations and digital painting. I started working as a freelancer in 2010. It’s really nice to make a job of your passion. Did you have game development experience before you started to work with TutoTOONS? I did some art and design works when I was an intern in a 2D game studio. During the internship, I was taught how to make several characters and learned how to create game environments. I also learned about making game assets. I didn’t learn how to program the game, though. Just making the arts. Tell us more about the game you were creating. The game I was creating for TutoTOONS is a cooking game called Cooking Mania. It has four mini games that include four different restaurants and food cultures - Chinese, Italian, Mexican and Japanese. The game characters are all little girls with appearance and looks matching their home countries. What was the most challenging part of making this game? Actually, the most challenging part was creating the environments and the food. This was the first time when I had to focus on making environments and food attractive and suitable for kids. I do not draw them that often and it was a good chance to learn how to do it better. What, in your opinion, is the most important thing in game creation using TutoTOONS game builder? Communication with people who help artists make games - we need all the help possible to make the game the best it can be. Even though the game builder is pretty nice and easy to learn, we still need to ask questions - technical, game idea, opinion about the appearance and other. As for the game builder application, the most important thing is knowing how to use its tools and scenes that fit with your game activity. We also need to think if the game idea is good enough and how to picture it from our mind into the game. Share a few game creation tips. First, for the idea: think about the target audience of your game. In this case, it’s the little girls. Try to picture what they like and what attracts them so they would enjoy playing our game. Next, the game art. There are many different styles of art that can be used for games but game artists must always think carefully which style will be liked the most by the players. We can’t just make the game as we like it because it’s not only for us. We can ask opinions and brainstorm with people around us to make decisions. We must be open minded: getting other people’s opinion may open a new box of ideas and help to make the game better. Great tips! Are you planning to make more games with TutoTOONS? In the future, I’ll try to come up with nice and fresh idea so I could make an even better game. We will be waiting for this! Describe TutoTOONS in 1 sentence. Nice and simple game builder :) Any final thoughts? It’s nice to have experience in working with TutoTOONS, I learned several new things, and not just about using the game builder but also about making better art, games, and in professional work.
