Roll up, roll up for... HOOPLA!

Roll up, roll up for… HOOPLA!

So. We’ve been busy…

Cyril

We are really very pleased, ecstatic in fact, to announce that we snagged a commission from Auntie. The Beeb. THE BBC! And not just any old bit of the BBC either, no, one of our favourite bits… CBBC! The day we found out there was much dancing and some drinking (of pints (of tea)). The project is for Dick and Dom’s newest incarnation on the channel, HOOPLA! A dark and murky carnival of weird games and mildly terrifying clowns. What’s not to love?

The Hoopla game is a series of mini games in which you get to torment Dick and Dom. You can either play to collect tokens which you can swap for astoundingly ‘good’ prizes or play against your mates in a shared keyboard mode. The games are a little bit odd and a little bit vile, but that’s  just how we like it. In the first two of the games available to play you get to either shoot at Dick and Dom via a ‘Bogie Blaster’ or fire ping pong balls at them and the pesky Clown Kids to protect your prizes.

I have, however, started to develop a slight aversion to clowns.

We have been quietly amused for months with the physics of snot. One of the games in the second batch (due out in the next few weeks) now has us focusing on the physical properties of vomit. All in a day’s work, we keep saying (whilst not quite being able to look each other in the eye). It has been a lot of fun though and getting to spend the weekend in Devon at Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre where the show was recorded and call that ‘work’ is currently a career highlight for me.

There will be more games going live soon so keep checking back here and on the CBBC site – although I’m sure you’ll hear me shouting from the roof tops once we’re all done!

Dick and Dom's Hoopla!
