Drawing Game

Doodle Jot is an HTML 5 / Canvas based game headed to the app stores this summer. It is an internal project here, at RAIN, built to demonstrate the abilities of HTML based applications.

RAIN came up with an idea for a drawing game that would become an ultimate time killer thanks to its simplicity and fun features. The main objective was to keep it HTML based, yet be fast, responsive, and usable without native device code. Due to the nature of this project, UX phase was combined with design prototyping in order to start the development process as early as possible.


DoodleJot uses transitions, animations, and HTML5 Canvas for a fully interactive social game experience, and we didn't use Cocoa or Java to write it. The game is leveraged across multiple platforms and is beautiful to boot!

WHAT WAS NEEDED

The mobile application had to co-exist with similar desktop version that has been already implemented and introduced to the end-user. The app had to be slick, responsive, and extremely user-friendly. It also had to work within the most current Brand Guidelines to make a smooth transition from online tool to mobile device.


HOW WE HELPED

We started with Discovery phase concentrating on client’s end-user. We researched an existing online tool along with client data to see how employees search for health benefits answers and how they communicate with their Health Assistants. This process helped create knowledge base that was further refined and used in wireframe creation.


Based on the wireframes, RAIN designed and developed a highly agile and flexible application that works flawlessly on all mobile devices. It was very well received by Turnberry Solutions and helped their clients transition to mobile platform without a hitch.
