These games were developed and released by BlackCherry for The Jim Henson Company to be deployed on the Vinci Tab, a custom android tablet. I was the lead programmer for this project. I also integrated all the interface audio, 3D assets, and game-play mechanics. The animations for the characters from Sid the Science Kid were created using 2D sprite sheets, while the Vinci characters were 3D animations.
In the lever game, players help Gerald create a lever to get all his toys into the sandbox. Children obtain a basic understanding of how a lever works in a virtual environment. In the measurement game, players help Gabriella find and measure everyday objects using non-standard measurement. Children obtain a basic understanding of relative length while actively measuring objects in a virtual environment.
