Memorina – Or How To Make A Computer Game Feel Hand-Made

Memorina is a classical game of matching cards, but it comes with an unexpected twist: the characters, the objects, the scenes, are completely hand-made, using oil, watercolor, pencil, charcoal, pastel, and threads. Even the animation was done by unconventional methods, like the spinning flowers, for example, were made by filming steadily rotating 60-cm-wide paper models and looping one clockwise turn afterwards. In fact, the only computer animation you’ll see in Memorina is a flip of a card.
