I have officially started work on a new educational game based on Sumy Takesue’s textbook “Music Fundamentals”! A new version of textbook is scheduled to come out this October, and my job is to recreate and improve the existing flash game in HTML5. It is to be used alongside the new book and must be available for mobile devices.
The project is really exciting, as it is a hybrid of several passions of mine: music, education, and games. Today was my first big conference call, and my boss has given me permission to design brand new exercises and mini-games and pitch them to her. What an amazing opportunity!
If I am allowed to, I will post more information on the project as it takes form. Next week is lots of research and design, followed by full-scale rapid prototyping. Down the line I may even get to post links to the beta here, which would be really awesome.
