It’s been over a year since the launch of Nightmare High, an educational web game from Channel 4 Education aimed at helping 10-11 year old children with the transition from primary school to secondary school.
We were lucky enough to be involved in this great project working with award winning production agency Somethin Else Productions, creating the illustrated characters, game environments and furniture. We worked closely with game production company PlayerThree, and watched as the characters and environments came to life over a period of a few months.
Last night, Nightmare High was up for an award in the Interactive category of the Children’s BAFTA Awards. Up against stiff competition from the likes of BBC Natural History, Disney and CBeebies, Nightmare High and Somethin Else took the accolades.
With very little marketing, the game has been played hundreds of thousands of times and has hopefully aided and educated the target demographic of “Tweens” in making that big step from little school to big school.
We’re over the moon to have been involved in an award-winning production and contributing to such a great project. Special thanks go out to Jo Roach and the whole team at Somethin Else for a job well done.
