Kalba.Lt Language Day Camp for Kids

Kalba.Lt, an educational organisation helping kids, teens, adults and companies in Lithuania learn foreign languages, hosted Language Day Camp for Kids in Vilnius on January 5th and invited TutoTOONS to present what game creators do. In Language Day Camps kids learn English and Chinese in the morning, play, draw and socialize, and meet guests in the afternoon. TutoTOONS developer Deividas Baumilas introduced the daily tasks of game developers and game artists, and explained how to become a game creator. You have to study and work hard! It’s amazing how many questions kids asked and how many ideas they suggested for new games. Some are even learning how to code and have already created a few video games, and one kid is planning to join TutoTOONS team in the future. 😎 When we hang out with kids, games are always involved and Language Day Camp was not an exception. Boys really liked our old but still cool Car Builder 3 and girls loved Miss Preschool Math World. It was very flattering to see that kids recognise TutoTOONS owl and know our games. ☺ Many thanks to Kalba.Lt for inviting us!

Irena’s Art Blog

Awesome blog post by Irena Gladkova where she shares the whole story (and beautiful art!) of creating Rainbow’s Magical Flower Salon, her first mobile game for kids with TutoTOONS. Read & get inspired to create your own game! :) Sneak Peek About a year ago (and some) I found out about a nifty platform called TutoTOONS. In short - if you create beautiful drawings, but programming is like martian to you, this platform lets you create and publish your own game just by dragging and dropping pretty pictures. I was excited to start drawing the flowers, and backgrounds and everything. But this was a pleasure project and I worked hard for pure pleasure and not a cent to be paid till the game is published and makes its first download and/or purchase. Having mouths to feed I had to juggle between “Drawing for pleasure” and “Drawing for food”, and it was obvious that this project will be a long run to the finish. I loved and lived for every single minute I was able to squeeze and work on my mobile game. I also had to hone my digital painting skills while drawing the actual illustration that will make my game. There were many days spent in painting something to the tiniest intricate detail, just to be discarded later. Stay tuned for the news when Rainbow’s Magical Flower Salon shows up on the app stores!

Sneak Peek at ‘Funny Halloween Party’ with Its Creator

It’s almost Halloween so no wonder we invite you to meet Anna Warenik-Gabbiani, artist of Funny Halloween Party game for kids! About the Game Funny Halloween Party takes kids to mysterious Willow Lane where they help Sarah, Amy and their green monster friend prepare for the night’s festivities. Spooky nail art, Halloween makeup, costumes, pumpkin carving, trick or treating - this game combines all Halloween traditions!   TutoTOONS: Hi Anna, tell us about yourself. Anna: Hi! I’m from Poland but I work as a graphic / visual designer in Milan. I did my Master’s degree in Graphic Design - Visual Arts and Illustration at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. I’ve also studied Visual Arts at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy, where I live. I really like to create children’s illustrations. It’s my big passion. My son is my inspiration for creating new illustrations. I am very interested in illustration, fashion, pattern design, graphic design, advertising, art, product and design. Visit Anna’s blog to see her artwork. Here are some samples: Did you have game creation experience before you started to work with TutoTOONS? This is my first game ever. How did you come up with your game idea? Halloween was coming so it was good to use this time period. What was the most fun part of making Funny Halloween Party? Seeing how my illustrations start to move. And what was most challenging? Learning how to use the software. How much time did it take to create the whole game? First I had to create the characters and than the backgrounds, and then to make them move. With support from TutoTOONS, it took more than a month to create a game. What, in your opinion, is the most important thing in game development? Making good illustrations and being well organized. Share a tip for people new at TutoTOONS. Be quick to modify the illustrations. Are you planning to make more games with TutoTOONS? Yes, I would like that. Describe TutoTOONS in 1 sentence. Well organized. Any final thoughts? Great experience. Thank you! Download and play Funny Halloween Party!
