Two-Day Workshop with Little Big Partnership

On March 16-17th, the whole team gathered at TutoTOONS Kaunas office to meet and learn from our special guest and mentor. Maurice Wheeler, partner at The Little Big Partnership who worked with global brands like Disney, LEGO and Nickelodeon, shared his insights on creating the best digital experience for kids. It was the most intensive TutoTOONS workshop so far: learning sessions with interactive tasks, a lot of valuable information, discussions and analysis of the newest TutoTOONS games, all in 2 days!  We learned more about kids of different ages. We asked many questions how to design and deliver the best content. Divided in teams, we put theory into practice and analysed how we can improve our games. Hard work has to pay off - we rewarded ourselves with a small party, played games at the office and wished Maurice a safe flight back home. Thank you!

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?
