The brief

The client reached out to Pulse to develop a digital version (a mobile app) of Yaa Ma Gena Xam, a board game for children based on Senegalese and African knowledge. The game had to closely mirror its offline version, maintaining the logo but flexible with other specifications. The goal of this app is to increase general Senegalese and African knowledge among children in Senegal.

As soon as we received the brief, we went to work understanding what was required, and kicking off initial designs.

By carrying the client along throughout the process, we were able to continuously synthesize our designs, layouts and game flow to arrive at a solution that the client was pleased with. As soon as the final designs were approved, we immediately started the development of the mobile app according to agreed specifications. Our careful and painstaking process ensured that the final product was well received by the client and also specifically provided the exact solution they were looking for.
