Creating over 100 incredibly addicting micro-games for Cartoon Network Anything app.
What kid (or adult) isn’t attached to their mobile devices nowadays? With more and more young people’s time being spent on their phones, Cartoon Network released an award-winning app for iOS and Android jam-packed with awesome content, including over 100 micro-games by REDspace.
The Anything app hosts short 10-15 second clips from the network’s most popular shows. When Cartoon Network needed to create the content, naturally, REDspace’s games team fit into the equation perfectly. With our experience in producing HTML5 games in Haxe and the Flambe framework for Nickelodeon, AddictingGames.com, and HarperCollins, REDspace was initially tasked with producing 60 HTML5 micro-games.
Now, the process of creating 10-20 micro-games alone is tough. You can imagine REDspace’s games team had to pull out all the stops and really flex its creative muscles in order create 60 original micro-game concepts, but we were more than up for the challenge. Once the creative concepts were approved, the REDspace games team hit the ground running with the development, design, audio engineering, and QA of all 60 games in three short months.
Cartoon Network was so happy with the first 60 games, we have since created an additional 55 games for the app.
The app and the games have been delighting end-users all around the USA and the app was recently named one of Google Play’s Best Apps of 2014 as well as awarded the Kidscreen iKids Award for Best Smartphone Game App 2015.
