Grasshopper’s Winter


Student team: Sarah Bishop (game design and development, Annapolis, Md.), Becca Turgeon (game design and development, Temple, Texas), Diana Kim (illustration, Glenview, Ill.) and Lefan Shi (illustration, China)

Developer Sarah Bishop says Grasshopper’s Winter is “a game about small bugs and their busy lives.” The RIT students created the all-ages, family-friendly, touch-enabled mobile app that transposes the classic “Ant and the Grasshopper” tale from simple children’s book to a “click-and-stick” mobile game. The team plans to publish and sell the app and will publicize the game on social media and at RIT’s Imagine RIT festival in the spring.
