Fixer-Uppers (PBS Kids Intern Project)
Help Dee, Dot, and Del get ready for Halloween using the objects in their backyard!
An accessibility-focused children's puzzle game created with PBS Kids, intended for children aged 5 to 6.
As the company's Accessibility in Kids Game Design Intern, I designed and developed this game from scratch over the course of June, July, and August of 2019.
This project was centered around employing accessible practices through Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and engaging kids in the Ready To Learn (RTL) Engineering Curriculum.
Project advised by PBS KIDS' Gameplay Creative Strategist Julie Maski, with input from the AbleGamers team.
This game was born out of the psychological phenomenon of functional fixedness, the cognitive bias in which people's perceptions of items are limited by the way the item is traditionally used. Puzzles have multiple solutions and explore using items in unconventional ways.
