I Spy Pirate Ship
Avast me hearties! Climb aboard I Spy Pirate Ship, an exciting new collaboration between Scholastic and Intel. The app merges the beloved hidden picture brand of I Spy with the cutting edge technology of Intel's RealSense 3D camera.
Monkey Bar Collective was thrilled to design games that made this new technology accessible to kids. We produced, wrote, and planned and propped the pirate ship photo shoot.
Monkey Bar Collective wrote the toy script for this exceptional robotics toy from Spin Master. One of our favorite characters of all time, Legendary Yoda trains Padawans to become Jedi Master. Yoda responds to voice commands in three modes of play: Warrior, Force, and Wisdom. Play with him you must!
Monkey Bar Collective is writing content, designing puzzles, and consulting on strategy for this innovative app adventure that combines online and offline play.
Animal Food Fight
Animal Food Fight is a card game designed by a class of first graders at a public school in northern Manhattan over an 8-part game design workshop. We led the kids through all of the key parts of game design: brainstorming, research, asset creation, usability testing, and art and design, while meeting the teacher’s needs for curriculum in the classroom. The result combines science and math in an innovative card game that allows players at very different skill levels to play against one another.
