Kuato Learning Platform is an open-world educational platform which contains a range of “speak-to” games that could be played using voice commands, focused on emotional and language development for children.
Here’s a quick breakdown of my role:
- Collaborating with design team to create a feature list and define the design pillars for all platform games, in line with market research and the national curriculum.
- Exploring several game concepts in line with the defined feature list.
- Brainstorming and creating pitches that articulate how these concepts uphold the game’s design pillars and drive the desired player educational development.
- Prototyping concepts to find the fun.
As part of the design team, I worked on a series of concepts in line with the platform open-world design and overarching storyline, each concept focusing on different areas of the national curriculum for the age group.

I prototyped a few of these concepts over the course of a few weeks, implementing in-house tools to add speak-to functionality. I also created different versions of existing concepts to focus on different areas of the curriculum, such as directions and colours (which you can view by clicking the videos below).
