The iD ArtCade is kinda an art gallery, kinda an arcade. It’s where pack holders can play 18 mind-blowingly awesome games and view works of art by emerging artists. New games and artwork are unlocked weekly, but users can scan their packs to unlock them sooner.
Ginga Ninja is one of the 18 games created for the campaign which you can unlock. You take control of the Ginger Ninja, get through the garden avoiding obstacles and keeping in the shade. Collect sun block to keep your self protected from the suns rays and collect the super sun block to enable frenzy mode equipped with sun glasses enabling you to destroy everything in your path with a karate chop, kick, sword and banana smash!? Spoilers…
In Snow Hoarder you take control of kleptomaniac fox on a snow board. Avoid obstacles while collecting everything else you can, the more stuff you carry the faster you can go. Collect stuff to enable a frenzy mode allowing you to destroy everything in his path and see how long you can last and avoid becoming a fox shaped snowball!
Playing Dubstep Dad you are a wanna be cool Dad complete with daggy pleated pants. Set him through the disco tech avoiding a whole range of psychedelic obstacles while collecting his much sought after disco balls. Collect enough disco balls to enable increasing silly dance moves to let Dad show you he’s still not got it. Then enable frenzy mode enabling him to destroy everything in his path and see how long you can last.
We worked with Rehab, London as a production partner taking proposed games designs doing the code development, sound and music engineering, character animation and artwork interface pieces for the mini-games. Artwork direction was done by Jack Teagle from Nobrow fame. While we developed the games Rehab and Chunk games worked on other aspects of the application build in a rather short time frame. The project has won several awards including both an FWA site and mobile application of the day.
