Fantastic news last night as Nightmare High won a children’s BAFTA after being up against some very stiff competition in the form of CBBC’s Tree Fu Tom, Disney’s Where’s my Water and CBBC’s Deadly Planet. We developed all the games for Somethin’ Else and Channel4 Education who created and managed the project and developed the story, website and all the filming.
Agency of Coney provided alot of the educational thinking and Ben Steers supplied the style for the characters. It was actually a tough project to produce games for as the there were some very specific learning outcomes that needed to be considered, many of which didn’t naturally lend themselves to games.
However our aim is always to keep the games challening and fun whilst still producing the right learning outcomes. The games we produced formed modules within a tight storyline from Somethin’ Else that the player has to experience. A mix of video, information, and entertainment to help encourage resilience and transition for school children moving from primary level to secondary level.
Well done to all the team involved.
