Creating a Game from a Static Image

Hi all,

I created a game from a Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) PDF that was awesome to begin with, but it cried for interactivity! I was not commissioned to create the game and have no affiliation with the government entity, but was given the go-ahead to user their content and images. Let me know your thoughts.

Original static PDF (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/parental-resource-kit/index.html - Look under "Board Game for Children" to download).

Here's the game that took around 18 hours to develop to include having to recreate some of the characters in Illustrator.

Hi Brian, 

What an enjoyable course :) thank you for sharing.  It gave me an inspiration for my new course. I was planning to add a quiz game which is played through a board but presenting the course with the steps on it is much better way to do it. 

Just an idea, what if we go to quiz and info layers /slides when we move to characters on that square? 

Thanks again, it is impressive and inspiring.

I love using games in my courses too, and your works in bigger boat studio are really cool. 

To illustrate what I meant, I prepared a quick demo by using a template I have been working on; https://s3.amazonaws.com/tempshare-stage.storyline.articulate.com/sto_1epokmupnrqm19lp15aq1d0r104v9/story.html
