Over this past week my partners and I at DINO Interactive Studios have developed an iPad application that allows input from a specific grouping of ‘fingers’ from the bottom of three objects. When you place the object on the screen surface of the iPad, flowers and vines grow from underneath the object.
This corresponds to the application as it is a flower growing app called Akina HD, available for free in a human-touch enabled version in the Apple App Store currently. My process in creating this was to take the aesthetic of the app and bring these elements into the objects as if they were an extension of game. The art I made for Akina is derived partly from the art of an interactive book I’m currently working on and plan to release on the iPad soon.
