Fierce Fun was tasked with creating an innovative game for the Ombudsman for Children’s Office (OCO). The OCO is a human rights institution that promotes the rights and welfare of young people under 18 years of age living in Ireland.
Their website is aimed at educating children and young people about their rights. They were looking for a game to make their site more interactive and fun. Their requirements included:
- Interactive and fun thus motivating the child to continue to learn within the website
- Colourful, attractive and age-appropriate for 8 to 12 year olds
- Compatible with embedding within their website system
- Compatible with mobile, iPad and desktop platforms
Based on our analysis of the OCO requirements, Fierce Fun proposed to create an Endless Runner type game. Endless runners are a variant of the platform game genre. . With their simplified controls and speed, they have become extremely popular on mobile devices. The game project was designed and delivered within 4 months. The client was very happy with the game and it is now live on their website.
Game: Rights Runner
Rights Runner is a 2D endless runner type game where you play the role of a young superhero who has to travel across the world to collect all of the children’s UN rights. A tornado has scattered them across Ireland, and it is your job to gather them all in your rights book. Your superhero collects energy hearts to keep them active and has to avoid many obstacles on their journey. Each right will be represented by one word and you have to jump to collect the individual letters that make up that word. When you have got the word, you will unlock a rights charter, with the full details about that particular right.
