I pitched the idea of a component based creativity tool in early 2014. The concept was to create a configurable tool that uses components to make anything. To date we have configured game makers, storytellers and music visualisers. On any device that has a browser. The key objective of the project is to encourage kids to have an experience of digital creations – to engage with logical thought and inspire consumers to become creators.
One of the game making iterations was the Doctor Who Game Maker – a drag and drop kit allowing users to create games featuring the Doctor, companions, Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans and more.
The Doctor Who Game Maker is hugely successful – it has been nominated for Welsh BAFTAs and won the Broadcast Digital Award 2016 for Best Children’s Digital Content.
