Created by internationally renowned children's book artists Brian Tse and Alice Mak, this book teaches children about Chinese architecture, how nature's influence can be seen around us, and how people and animals can live together in harmony. The illustrations capture the majesty of both the natural world and the Forbidden City and are enhanced by animations and interactive components for readers. The text can be read in either English or as simplified Chinese characters. English and Chinese narration is provided by American actress Jacqueline Emerson, making this e-book app a useful tool for language learning.
As Lead Developer, I was tasked with taking the graphics used for book printing and converting them into an e-book using the Unity engine. The e-book has options for swapping between both English/Chinese text and narration in real-time, allowing the end-user various options like reading in English while hearing Mandarin or visa versa.
