How Do You Make a Fun Game at Home?

Thomas, a stay-at-home dad, is making a mobile game based on the drawings of his kid, who is on the autism spectrum. It's an infinite runner designed for a younger audience with the goal of teaching spelling while having fun.

In 'Go, Booper, GO!' the player will dodge and jump obstacles to build preset words before time runs out. A second play mode allows players to pick up letters and spell words for points. Thomas tells his kids' drawings seemed to be a natural for making game characters with. And they had filled stacks of sketchbooks with them.

Thomas can pay them with juice boxes & snacky bars. He is making this game with the end goal of funding his VR game based on the same character and donating part of the profits to autism awareness & acceptance.
