In 2009, J.C. collaborated with toy company Smith & Tinker to write animated webisodes for its groundbreaking electronic gaming experience, Nanovor.
Nanovor is a digital battling monster game that combines the strategy of a collectible card game with the appeal of a multiplayer online game. It gained rapid adoption with kids, especially 7-to-12-year-old boys who love the strategy, battle animations, "splats" and green goo. The game was the first to truly integrate multi-player PC gaming with offline, handheld play on its proprietary device, the Nanoscope. Now on iOS, Nanovor was selected as one of the Best New Children’s Products of 2009.
