Buenos Aires, Argentina – Independent Game developer Emibap today is pleased to announce the release of Sophie’s Drawings 1.2, an update to their step-by-step drawing iPad app, is now available for high resolution iPhone and iPod. And as a way of celebrating this event, the price of the app is 33% less for the day.
Sophie’s Drawings is a Learn-to-Draw App made for children aged 3 to 7 which analyzes every stroke and brings the drawings to life by animating the result. The main character, Sophie, makes sure that the player know whether the stroke is correct or if it has to be redrawn. The first version was released on December 12, 2012 as a Full and Lite version. The full version came with 14 drawings in 3 scenes: An initial “Hello”, “The Sea” and “The Farm.”
Each drawing consists in a group of strokes that children have to follow, with some accepted margin of error. When the drawing is finished, it comes alive as a reward. Kids get to draw basic shapes, a pig, a dog, a whale, and an octopus, among other drawings that magically begin to move. A previous update added some new features and another drawing.
This is the second update of the App, which also comes also with a new drawing, The Shark, for a total of 16 drawings that will begin moving as soon as the player draws the last stroke.
