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! :)
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!
