From Julian Stokoe’s Yoozoo in NZ and La Boîte à Pitons in Canada, courtesy of the Canada-New Zealand Digital Media Fund, transmedia series Curious Critters Club comprises interactive stories, a website and an augmented reality game.
Designed to engage children with environmental issues in the real world, Curious Critters Club is aimed at kids between the ages of 6 and 12. The apps are available for free via the App store and Google Play. Current language options include English and French. A te reo Māori version will be released next year.
Among the Kiwis contributing to the project are Madeleine Sami, as a narrator for Call of the Giant Eagle, and Rush Digital for AR development.
