HEY GUYS THIS IS WHAT I AM THINKING OF DOING FOR THE KIDS APP SECTION OF THE MUSEUM. ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE APPRECIATED 🙂
Storyline: Meredith the snake just moved from Australia to Auckland Zoo. She needs help getting familiar with her new home and the other animals.
How it works: The kids will go around scanning QR Codes that are at each enclosure. By doing this they unlock some information about the animals in that particular enclosure, name, age, date of birth, favorite food, etc. This information is really what Meredith needs but in return the kids get either get a puzzle or a coloring in page, which they have to complete in order to gain points. With the points earned, kids are able to use them to purchase locked items that they can add to their own virtual zoo, which they can name anything they want, and maintain. (Farmvielle concept).
I chose a snake because I thought it would be different, and that is one of the ‘popular’ animals that is not found at the Auckland Zoo. After some consideration however I thought maybe a snake is not the best animal to use, this is where I need the feedback. Is a snake an appropriate animal to use as my main character for the app?
The style is going to be all illustrations, inspired by the Taronga zoo app.
