Meet Jack, the newest app designer on the scene.

At just five years old, the release of Happy Travels makes Jack one of the youngest game designers ever.

Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Lots of five-year-old kids play video games, but at only five years of age, Jack already made one. Working with the help of Mommy (a graphic designer) and Daddy (a coder), Jack has created Happy Travels™, an app about an adventurer who visits exotic destinations in search of treasure chests filled with loot.

The artwork and imagery in the game are entirely of Jack’s own design, which he creates using pencils and Crayola® crayons. Everything from the backgrounds to the vehicles to the enemies are dreamed up and drawn by Jack. Mommy then scans the illustrations and Daddy codes them to come to life exactly as Jack envisions them.

In the game, a player controls Jack’s vehicle on a hand-drawn theatrical stage. The player must avoid obstacles and enemies while collecting the required booty from treasure chests. The game features six unique books, each containing 15 chapters, and set in a different exotic location such as the Bermuda Triangle, a rainforest, and outer space.

The release of Happy Travels makes Jack one of the youngest game designers ever. Educated through The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, Jack quickly moved through kindergarten and completed first grade way ahead of schedule. In addition to his studies, Jack is learning how to code with Daddy, and also enjoys reading, having recently finished biographies on both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. He loves being out in nature and exploring new places, two aspects he uses as the foundation for his app.
