We were very excited when our clients Beazley asked us to create a game for them to help with their support of British Fencing. We really enjoy working on projects for Beazley as their core audience is usually very competitive. You may have noticed but we love a bit of competition!
By shear coincidence, Russell is a keen fencer and was happy to bring his kit in to the office for us to get to grips with the rules and flow of the game. ‘Researching’ this game was one of the most fun things we’ve done this year, if only because it was an excuse to wave swords around in the office. I think maybe sometimes I go on a little too much about how much I love my job, but seriously… look:
Kyle did a great job on the development of this game. The creation of artificial intelligence for the computer opponent seems a little like witchcraft to me but he assures me it’s not (no frogs were sacrificed in the making of the game).
The game was launched a couple of weeks ago and it’s been really well received. We were very pleased when we realised that some of the British fencing team were playing – quite competitively!
Go play the game now and see how well you can do against them!
