How it works
Remote or on-site game design and consultation. Includes meeting with our game designer and researchers, this does not include travel charges if necessary.
You will be provided with a list of needed media, images, and language data (stories, historical or cultural events, etc).
A Google spreadsheet and Dropbox folder will be provided for you to fill out.
If you handle this portion of the process, there is no charge. If you would like us to source this data, an hourly rate will apply.
Our design team will then compile all the organized media and create a prototype of your card or board game.
We will produce on full test copy and either send it to you to play test with the focused age group or we can travel and meet with you to play test (the latter is preferable)
Sometimes we find that there will be a small series of revisions to the game after play-testing.
The game is done!
Enjoy your new game!
Why it’s great and essential
Research and development is a vital part of Native Teaching Aids' commitment to meeting targeted educational goals and tailoring products for clients' specific languages and cultures.
We often create new products based on questions, suggestions, needs, and interests expressed by clients and other members of the tribal or business communities, as well as our staff.
Although physical and digital product development may have different requirements, all steps are taken in collaboration with and with the approval of the client. In some cases, clients prefer to provide us with writing, photos, and videos that they wish to be included. In other cases, Native Teaching Aids does the required research, creates a prototype, and then makes revisions requested by the client. By either method, Native Teaching Aids is committed to arriving at products that meet the needs of their clients.
