What an RPG is

To be a top RPG, games have to have an immersive storyline which grips the player.

The process of creating the cutscene for the game went through four steps:

First draw the images by hand through use of storyboards

Next scan the images into Photoshop where they are edited further to look a better quality

Then the images are animated in Flash in order to create the cutscene

Finally the Flash animation is converted into a video format for use of play outside of Flash

There are many different ways to advertise a video game; TV, Internet, Magazines and Billboards are some examples.

By using televised media the target audience will see the product being used, however they won’t see much of the game, therefore they won’t get an idea about what the game play is like.

Advertising our game in magazines would allow the reader to find out more about the game, what it looks like and what other people think about it, and they can do this at their leisure. Using the Internet would also allow the reader to find out about the game, but also to view videos of the game play.

To ensure our game reaches the target audience it needs to be advertised on TV channels, magazines and any other media that targets children.

By using Covert Advertising we can draw children’s attention to the game if they see it being used by a character on a TV program. This will associate the game with that character and will make the game more desirable.



Why you want this game.

Viking Explorer offers a totally new experience. It successfully fuses together the desirable elements of an epic RPG with an educational system that engages players.

  • By successfully blending these elements Viking Explorer has carved its own niche gap in the market and sets to take the games industry well and truly by the tusks.
