Jonathan Minori, a senior interactive designer at Struck Creative, just told me about their latest creation for Mario Super Sluggers wii game.
Here’s his say on it:
“We just launched a site to promote the new Mario Super Sluggers game for
the Nintendo Wii. In partnership with Goodby, Silverstein & Partners we
created this online card trading game where kids can collect all 41 cards
that feature characters, places, special moves etc from the game.
The site already has 30k+ users and at a point there were 1700 trades
going on a second! Kids can find their cards through interactive banners
or by trading with their friends through the web site.
All of the card interactivity on the site was done with Papervision3d. By
clicking on a card in your collection it will flip and bend into view.
Also you can drag your cards to the ‘drop zone’ or swapping area and
notice the bend based on mouse movement.”
It’s a really really cool concept and it’s amazingly well done, you have to register to be able to see it but it’s definitely worth it!
