Neill Glancy was the visionary Game Director behind the concept. A big idea he gestated on for decades until Disney offered him the ideal conditions to develop it further. It was a real honor to collaborate with Neill and the dev team on visual development, game design, animation, audio, etc. And because of the game's innovative gameplay mechanics, Neill and I were awarded a US patent for game design.  What an exciting achievement that was! 
It's a crying shame this game concept is locked away in the dusty vaults of Disney IP.  Neill and I would've loved to have shared the final product with the world. It was truly something special.

I created this 3D mockup to show my Art team what the game should look like. Notice all the beautiful imperfections - rips, creases, folds, and paper grain.
