Animal Hero’s adventure started in 2014 in the Interactive Design subject, imparted by Oscar Garcia Panella, in the university school ERAM.
We had the opportunity to collaborate with the investigation center PRBB (Parque de Recerca Biomédico de Barcelona) in order to create a little prototype of a videogame for their studies on Down Syndrome, and to be able to test it with the children of the investigation. On the day that the children had the opportunity to play with the prototype, we could see that they really had fun and were excited to play our game. That day we decided that it was the path we wanted to follow, and that’s how Animal Hero Universe was Born.
Animal Hero Universe is a project created with the drive and energy of 7 young people, enthusiastic and multidisciplinary that little by little have created and shaped a universe full of fun and learning, but always with the help and support of different people: professionals, associations and institutions without which any of these would have been possible.
The project has been the winner of different awards in a national and european scale, and it has had the opportunity to visit Silicon Valley thanks to the Yuzz programme. And thanks to the Bifrutas Pascual’s grant we have been able to create the digital version of the storybook, which is now available for free download in Google Play and Apple Store.
