They wanted something that could entertain kids in the waiting rooms without being addictive. The game hat to take into consideration the different handicaps kids would have.
The toy was made to work with their custom pressure grid input (each pressure plate was 1 by 1 feet, but the whole grid was 10 by 10 feet).

Scripting-wise, I wanted to see if I could make modular states in Behavior Machine that can be duplicated over and over to add abilities wherever needed.
