Musical Makki

After analyzing interviews and observations gathered at the Bethany Center for Seniors in San Francisco, I decided to design a game to bring generations closer together. Many elders at the center spoke passionately about their love for music and children. However, it seemed they had little contact with either. The game, Musical Makki, is meant to take the success of music based games such as DDR and translate them into a less physically intensive and more intergenerational experience. A little girl can bring this game to her grandfather’s nursing home, and bond through silliness and laughter.
