Psyche: Mission Control
Date: March 14, 2019
Genre/Medium: HTML5 Digital
About the work: Not every kid wants to scroll on a webpage and read (I personally did as a kid but I know I’m not the typical user!). Even though the Psyche site is wonderfully designed and engaging already, I wanted to created a more game like atmosphere to engage kids directly. This was my first time doing a project like this and it made me really think about interactive design. I designed the Interactive Timeline as if the player was put in charge of the mission, this hopefully gives them a sense of responsibility even though it is just pretend. With them now in this role, the user’s focus goes more on the mission and learning about it.
