We're Maui Studios and we're committed to bringing dope
traditional Maori stories to life.
We do a lot of graphic design and film outcomes for businesses
and a huge passion of ours is showcasing traditional Māori content
to New Zealanders through comics and graphic novels. A huge outcome
is that we can bring more exposure to the rich tikanga and culture
in the Māori world and language.
We're embarking on a journey to bring more stories to life
grounded in traditional Māori content. We're working on a card game
that will centre around a pa vs pa battle. It's designed around a
graphic novel that we're crafting in the studio, where Tumatauenga
the God of war is facing off against Te Whiro the god of malice.
Your card deck plays out this battle between these gods. The pa
fight on behalf of these atua and the warriors on the front line
fight for their whanau.
It gives a perspective into Māori culture by highlighting some
crucial concepts like why karakia and waiata are important and also
about whakapapa and why our connections with the land, river and
people around us are valuable.
This is where you guys come in. We need your help to make it
happen. Your donations will help us to pay for the design of the
individual cards for one card deck consisting of 50 cards. Any
additional donations will go toward the design of an additional
deck and anything further than that can be spent toward getting
We've lined up what the cards are going to be, (the game design)
but we need your support and putea to help with designing them up
and bringing them to life. We can't finish the project with all the
challenges of day to day business life without help.
