Giants – Digital Dugout

These are a series of Flash games we developed for the San Francisco Giants baseball team.

The games were designed to be used on the touchscreen kiosks in the Giant’s stadium. We developed 2 games, both themed around their stadium and mascots. The first was a simple puzzle game where the player had to switch off all the lights.  Since this was to be played on a touchscreen kiosk the game was kept simple and the buttons were big and bold.

The the second was a “Space Invaders” type shooting game, where the player would shoot baseballs at the mascot heads.  This required some creative thinking to get the game interface working on a touchscreen, but the end result was a fun and addictive game.

Sonic Science

Sonic Science is a series of educational games developed for the BBC. The project involved developing games for blind and partially sighted children (7 – 11 year olds), so were audio based. The character led games pulled audio tracks in from external XML language files meaning the games could be deployed in multiple languages easily. [ read more ]

Alice in Wonderland

We were simply given the brief of creating a platform game for 7 – 10 year olds, based on the Alice in Wonderland story. What we developed was a multi-level game packed with obstacles, characters, objects and puzzles. [ read more ]

Tone Tutor

Tone Tutor is an online ear training application developed for GuitarControl.com

The software allows the user to select a sequence length and range of tones and then listen to them and try to match the tones to the guitar fretboard.

We also modified 3 of our rebrandable Flash games as part of the project. The three games, based on the old arcade classics of Pacman, Space Invaders, and Asteroids, were given extra functions where guessing the tones correctly would help in the form of powerups and extra points. The complete package really lived up to our brief of creating a fun way to learn guitar online. [ read more ]
