Bingel is an online learning platform for kids in elementary school. Through engaging storylines and games they get to learn their material in a fun way…and starting this schoolyear, there’s a different island and story for every grade!

I was tasked with creating art -in the broadest sense- for one entire grade: backgrounds, objects, characters and clothing. Everything other than the interface buttons, which are the same for every year!

 

The story of my Bingel island is set in the future and involves a utopia where everything has ‘gone green’. At the core of the island is an energy source called Wonderium, which has a miraculous and healthy effect on the island and its citizens.

Oh, and then there’s also a visit by beings from outer space…

City hall: in the actual game all the blank areas are places where content (texts, assignments, images) is projected.

Island locations: each location has two images that serve as backgrounds for the students’ playful assignments.

Humans & aliens – the first three images are all characters created with the custom avatar tool
