Renault Twingo Game

This was originally briefed as part of a homepage takeover with multiple videos but as we’d done that quite a lot before, I recommended that we take sections of the video and turn them into a top-down driving game.

The car includes steering behaviour to move towards the mouse in a realistic way and each section includes an activity which can be interacted with: the ramp will allow the car to jump, the balls can be bounced around, the speedway will temporarily take over your driving and the paint splats will allow you to make your own Jackson Pollock.

Update: 2014-11-18 The game just got rolled out for the 3rd time running due to great stats. A very pleased client!

This was an After Effects project where the butterflies were animated in 3D in After Effects and then animated onstage using swarming techniques to provide a more natural, wind-blown feel and a 3D camera to provide depth of field effects.

The syncing banners were then build for DoubleClick using AS3 with a custom set of classes to make managing the DoubleClick components and the syncing a little more efficient.

This was originally scoped as a Flash build where a group of characters would be constantly moving around in a house, interacting with each other and their environment. At any time a user could come and watch them and see how their favourite character was doing. Over time, the users would vote for their favourite character and the one with the least votes would then be removed from the house – it kinda sounds like a show that sounds a bit like schmig schmother, doesn’t it? 🙂

The scope was eventually broadened to include tablets and mobile phones so the choice was made to scrap the flash and move to a canvas prototype. Unfortunately, the project ended up getting scrapped due to a change of management at the clients but as a proof of concept, this was worth holding on to.
