News games

Posted: March 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

Like promised I want to talk abit about some of our ideas we’ve had on the whiteboards over the last couple of days. We’ve been focusing on News Games and looked at several danish examples of this, specifically from DR (Danish Radio&Television). A news game is a short-lived, often relevant to a specific audience, game which is so simple at its core that it can be designed over a couple of days. Of course being simple also means your audience will lose interrest fairly swift, but if the game manage to etablish enough hype around a particular newsflash and that event keeps rolling on television or the livingrooms you’ll have new people coming in to check out the game every day. Etablishing an awareness of the news and squezzing out every bit of it, before the public’s interrest moves on, is the name of the game.

We’ve been working on flash with photoshop, importing pictures of me running into flash. We’ve just been fooling around with the tools. It’s been good – I’ll try and get some pictures of it at some point. It’s hilarious watching yourself run around on the screen. TTFN.
