Description

7 years ago
We're re-working the copy on this page, and we have a brand new graphic to show-off. 

Let's remember one of the main reasons for re-working this page: adding a bit of HTML5 awesomeness to it. 

On the old version of the page we played with having the "?" teeter and fall off the page. This bug is to add a small bit of html5 fairy dust to the new iteration of this page, taking the new graphic and copy into mind. 

Assigning to you now to think about before building out the page (graphic is still being worked on). I'll add some of my ideas here later.

Moving this to 2.9 as it's code-freeze day and we don't have the artwork yet.

Additional ideas:

-make a character "blink" slightly every 8 seconds or so - just enough to make the visitor do a double-take.
-have the light source change somehow: turn off after user is on the page for >10 seconds so characters are "hidden" but have only their eyes show at that point, or have it sway side to side a bit like a lamp above is swinging,   
-have part of the copy fade in or out, or start shaking, or breaking away onto the floor

Since the graphic and copy are now final more ideas may come up as the page is built.
* Dust blowing through the room under the light
* Bugs flying around
* Button to toggle the light
* Actually implement a card game, you can click on the cards to view them and play them

Switching the "HTML5 awesomeness" bug to a Future release for now. The bug to actually implement the page with the new copy/illustration is still on track (Bug 661546).
