Behind the Scenes: Mental Samurai



After a long delay, King Penguin once again returned to national television last night, with the season premier of Mental Samurai! Rob Lowe hosts the Fox game show, which puts competitors’ capabilities to the test with difficult mental challenges.

Mental Samurai features a wide variety of question types, and we created gameplay graphics that could present information to the contestants in clear and visually appealing ways. We formatted and designed images, artwork, and videos that both fit the show’s cutting-edge style and could be seamlessly incorporated into gameplay. And by designing a templating system, we were able to deliver thousands of assets that were all consistent and easily programmable.
