Every Day is Play is a Kickstarter book project by designer Matthew Kenyon, celebrating the video game. Submission of artwork for the publication was open to everyone. With such an opportunity, how could we resist.
Our theme was virtual meets real world. With so many potential contributors it was important to select a game that would not be heavily represented, yet still a classic of it's time. It should also be a game that could occur in an everyday scenario. Looking round the studio and noticing the big shelf unit led to the selection of Taito's platform classic Bubble Bobble.
After some research the characters were illustrated in pixel form. These were then mapped as separate flat construction plans for each colour. The flatplans were then carefully folded/ glued and then assembled to bring the characters to life.
The book is still being collated and designed so we have yet to hear if we will be included in the final publication. Fingers crossed!
