Tut's matching Game
Role: Intern / Game Proposal / Design / Actionscript
Collaboration with Yulia Sheynkman

Tutenstein is an animation series about a 10-year-old boy king (and his surroundings including his clever friend Cleo), who was mummified three thousand years ago, but now is residing in a museum after being brought back to life in the 21st century when a lightning bolt hit his sarcophagus .

The game has three levels of difficulty in order to accommodate a range of players from youth to adult. It provides information on the educational depth of the show by revealing facts about ancient Egyptian mythology. To add an overlay of playfulness and humor to the game, sound bites of each character are played each time cards are matched.

Marketing department of Discovery Kids included it in a DVD sampler during a Tutenstein promotional campaign in the fall of 2004. (Information from the online dept. producer Shayna Nickel)

Internship Experience @ Discovery Kids
Internship with Discovery Kids was a great learning experience for me in many ways. I got to know how the kids' television business works, meeting with representatives of the marketing, programming and product departments, participating in their weekly meeting and understanding their conceptual vision and specific goals. As a result, we were able to create games to support their programming initiatives.
