Away Media recently teamed up with CBBC to assist in the production of the latest web content for the children’s program Escape from Scorpion Island. The TV show focuses on two teams assigned a series of island-style challenges, and the website continues that theme with a navigable series of mini-games.
Away Media were brought in to assist with the Flash development of the web interface for series 4 of the show. This included the development of the 3D island interface, the navigation interfaces, animations for all intro screens, info panels, hi-scores and video players, and the client-server communication using the existing BBC login facility.
Visitors to the site can keep a running score of their achievements on all minigames, that are entered into a hi-score table alongside other CBBC players. The mini-games were developed independently by 4T2 and Collective, two London-based digital agencies.
