Our Experience with Early Childhood Gaming
Our experience with making games for young kids dates back to 2006 when we first got the opportunity to develop a Game Boy Advance game featuring Dora the Explorer for Nickelodeon. That game was to coincide with the launch of the DVD and TV release of the Dora’s World Adventure episode and was a great learning experience for us. We learned the basics of what an early childhood player was capable of as well as the basics of brand adherence. We’ve since developed many games for the Dora the Explorer brand as well as others for Nickelodeon including Ni-Hao Kai Lan, The Backyardigains, and Go! Diego, Go!
Fast forward to 2010 where we got the opportunity to work with Warner Bros. Interactive and Sesame Workshop on their reemergence to the gaming scene with two new games: Elmo’s A-to-Zoo Adventure and Cookie’s Counting Carnival. We evolved our design approach to include value for not just the player, but the parents as well and were excited to introduce our Parent’s Page concepts in those products that would provide information to the Parent about their child’s progress in the game.
All of these collective experiences created a great foundation on which to build our latest endeavor into early childhood gaming: collaboration with PlayDate Digital to bring Hasbro Publishing brands to mobile devices.
