Genie Choose Your Own Adventure

  • 2006

A choose your own adventure book for navigating round a museum.

Because we only had four tablet PCs to try out Genie, and a whole class load of primary school children coming to try it out, I made a choose your own adventure style book for the other children.

This was a really interesting challenge, and in some ways this was as valuable to try out as the tablet PC version.

I'd quite like to go back to this some time.

The fantastic illustrations for this and the tablet PC screens were done by a Sheffield company called Finger Industries.

There are strands here - hidden or trapped creatures, invisible worlds, creative writing questions about the creature, the treasure hunt structure, participants' drawings of the creatures - that run through to Free All Monsters
