First Time Online: Postman Pat
|Released||22nd February 2013|
Code - Richard Davey
Graphics - Tom WaterhousePLAY
If you’ve got smaller children and watch CBeebies in the UK then you’ve probably seen their First Time Online campaign running. The project is aimed both at educating parents about what CBeebies has to offer online, as well as encouraging and explaining to young children how to interact with it. We built 3 different mobile interactions, each teaching a different element of being online through key CBeebies brands.
Created for the mobile/tablet web browser they take the young players through learning about 3 common interactions: ‘Touching’ is introduced via an Abney and Teal bubble popping game. The ‘Swiping’ mechanic is explained by hunting for the Piplings in Waybuloo and flicking the leaves away. And finally Postman Pat: Special Delivery Service introduces the concept of ‘having to wait’ for things to download – an unfortunate but unavoidable event in all online games!
It was great fun working with 3 such well known brands and pouring over the gorgeous assets provided.
You can play by visiting First Time Online on your mobile browser.
How to play our HTML5 games
While all of our games work in both mobile and desktop browsers a lot of the sites they are embedded in are mobile only.
To get around this either make sure you play our game using a mobile web browser or install a User Agent spoofing extension. We recommend the User-Agent Switcher for Chrome.
