Inspired by the ideas, ideals and creative freedom of the Surrealist movement, primary age children authored and published their own artistically ambitious video game, called Paper Dreams.

With the support of our professional artists, they developed an amazing a range of quirky characters and outlandish environments. They created illustrations, animations, interactions and wrote text based dialogues as part of a fun, authentic and inspiring creative experience.

Funded by

Arts Council England, Haydonleigh Primary School, the parents of the home educated children, Priory College, Swindon Borough Council, Shaw Ridge Primary School.

it felt like we were doing it for a real reason … like actually being an adult … a professional

It’s a group project .. all the effort drawing and designing belongs to all of us

happy … proud … surprised we managed to do it

I didn’t think it would be this good … it’s massively better than I expected … I feel it’s like a proper game that you would actually see on Steam

we’re going like ‘woah!’ … our friends are going to think it’s amazing
