Abstract
The study focuses on development of game design based on Malaysian Folklore, Toyol. The objectives of the study are to identify the possibility of applying the Toyol as a main character in a game design and to introduce the characteristics of Toyol through the interactive multimedia platform. The design process is influenced by the discovery of existing contents from local films, literature and novels, myths, fairy tales, folk song and music, animal fables, legends and humorous stories. The study concludes that folklore of Toyol in a form of digital game design could be executed as a digital entertainment tool to channel the understanding of culture, people‟s belief and knowledge about Toyol.
