the brief

iDEA is a national project that helps you badge your brilliance. An ambitious project to create a new nationally recognised award for young people wanting to go into the digital industries.

Through their series of online challenges and events, badge players can win career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain nationally recognised awards that help you stand out from the crowd.

iDEA approached us in their badge building stage to come up with an interactive game. We were tasked with conceptualizing, designing and building what we imagined an engaging and educational badge to be.

The project is supported by Nominettrust, The Prince Andrew Charitable Trust, Salesforce, Microsoft, Sevenshills and the University of Huddersfield.

The project

From concept and scripting, to design and development.

Our approach began by identifying what we felt worked as a badge, coming up with several concepts all based arounds gamification and interactivity, rather than dry educational questions. We wanted the game to be fun and engaging, as well as educational.

We produced hand drawn storyboards alongside scripts, before prototyping each badge digitally.

We designed the game to be fully functional on as many devices as possible, and so the project was built in HTML5. The client side development involves the use of HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and 2D game engine rendering using PixiJS.
