STUDIO PROJECT

YOOKA

Yooka is an interactive user experience in which players upload images they have taken, that then transform into adorable creatures, aptly named ‘Yookas’. These Yookas have the ability to eat, breed with and attack one another; the ultimate goal being to become the sole survivor and greatest of all Yookas. The project is largely a result of exploration into iterative design fuelled by the interaction and involvement of external influence, requiring an element of ‘Play’ from the experience’s investors.
