LEGO asked us to create a microsite and game for the Man of Steel. We felt like we’d won the LEGO lottery!
What did we do?
We carefully studied the visual style of DC’s original comics, using darker, stronger shadows and halftone patterns to create a beautiful combination of LEGO’s strong identity and DC’s comic styling.
We then got cracking on the game, based on a short story of Superman fighting crime and chasing Lex Luthor to save the day.
Taking our cue from classic arcade side-scrolling shooting games, players use the keyboard to control Superman, dodging Lex’s missiles while shooting him with laser eyes and frost breath.
The game was a great success, seamlessly blending story and gameplay to create a fun and truly addictive experience!
