B&Q Sustain – It Games

This was part of a large project to create all game graphics for 2 games for B&Q. The games are educational and help children learn about saving energy. I enlisted help from my pal Richard Hinchcliffe to work with me to deliver this large project, as there was lots to do and a tight deadline.

We worked together using Skype and Dropbox, to allow us to work collaboratively on all elements of the project. The work was produced for Leeds agency – Digital Welly.

Here’s a link to play both games.

Each room in the house had a number of different ‘states’ which required a number of 3D renders to be created for each room. For example, in the bedroom we had a version with the curtains open and the curtains closed, as these were key options in the game. Each room had 2 or 3 states, where the user could change things in the room. In addition each room had a number of ‘hot spots’ which were also used within the game.

Here’s a couple of images of the 1st Game showing some of the interface elements, as well as the little 3d animated pig who lets you know if you have answered the questions correctly or not !

All the ‘hotspot’ images in the game were also created in 3D. The meant we had to create quite a large library of 3D assets ranging from bath and showers, to things like compost bins and solar panels.
