Immersive Authorship

Young storytellers, gamers, coders, writers and artists are working together to devise, write, illustrate and publish an interactive fantasy gamebook, both in print and online.

Tooth Ill

Tooth Ill is a satirical animated YouTube series set in a fictionalised version of Toothill in West Swindon where everyone is a dinosaur. It is written, recorded, drawn and animated by young people living in Toothill. Before lockdown, the short episodes were due to be released monthly. They are relevant, punchy and very funny.

Beyond Reality

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.

Adventures in Interactive Storytelling

We worked with 63 young people aged 11 – 19 from 3 schools to support them to create an interactive, illustrated gamebook for tablet and smartphone. Young people took part in plotting, writing, illustrating, app design and coding workshops. Young people worked with professional writers, illustrators, musicians and developers. The final game is available on the iOS App Store and Google Play.


A project in which diverse groups of young people made their own levels for an epic video game.

Together, they came up with an amazingly rich story and a diverse cast of complex characters.

Each group chose their own style of game for their level and did all the drawing and animation.
