ROLE: Creative Direction, Digital Experience
DELIVERABLE: Web Game
DATE: AUG 2019
Shiseido tasked us to create a web-based game to support the promotion of the campaign film for the WASO AW2019 collection. The brief was clear: design a simple, clean and elegant game that would invite players to discover the origin of the products and bring them closer to the Japanese philosophy of Washoku, the harmony with food which is the core aspect of all WASO products. Composed of 4 levels, the game asks the player to toss the ring around carrots, daikon, wasabi and honey dipper to reveal each of the four products of the new collection.
Surreal & Playful
Building Ring Toss was a real playground for us. We had personally worked on the campaign film of the AW2019 collection, so we already had an incredible amount of material to use. We started with sketching level design and interactive mechanics, then spent some time working on the mood and the colors, which we knew had to be surreal and playful like in the film. Meanwhile, our developer began prototyping the game environment, which we used to run tests and show the client our plan.
Hold, pull, release!
A simple yet sophisticated digital experience
Through colorful visuals, music, and playful interactions, we recreated inside the browser a small part of a big universe. The outcome is a simple yet sophisticated digital experience that provides both the fans of WASO and the casual gamers the opportunity to discover the brand and enjoy the connection between Japanese food and the product.
