Animal Snap is an educational game that teaches young children about colours and animals. With consideration for older gamers that may suffer from learning or intellectual disabilities Animal Snap has the ability to appeal to a wide audience.

Starting as an idea for my studies in the area of serious games for mental health Animal Snap as a concept was originally used for its mindfulness properties. Mindfulness is currently very popular not only in dealing with mental health issues but for general health and well-being as can be seen with the recent explosion of adult colouring books and mandalas. As the idea that received the most feedback for its unique game play mechanics and ability to get the gamer moving the idea was taken and expanded upon and made into Animal Snap.
