I’m very excited for this one.
BuzzFeed and eBay have partnered up to create branded content for this Christmas season. For one of the content posts, we pitched to reimagine the Christmas period as a video game, and well, I got to do just that!
This was an incredible challenge for me, linking the various parts of Christmas that everyone will recognise with game mechanics and formats that I have loved since I was old enough to hold a controller. Then, creating 11 individual animations and all the assets that could actually be used to make 11 individual mini-games. It was a hard slog and involved a few mental melt downs with some of the tricker mechanics, but I couldn’t be prouder.
