The Ariel Fashion Shoot

on September 13, 2011 by Martina Comments

Aim, stain, win.

This campaign comes from Sweden and was executed in downtown Stockholm at the Central train station just a few weeks ago. The idea is pretty cool, it’s an advergame with targets & effects in the real world.

Axe in the Dark

on September 6, 2009 by Martina Comments

In Japan Axe is back with a new weird but cool campaign. Axe in the Dark is an amusing advergame inspired to horror movies full of monsters and with one hero who will (or could) rescue the girl. Everything takes place in a dark cinema hall: the player moves around with the keyboard, trying to avoid to meet the monster and, at the same time, looking for or, better, smelling for the hero who will save her. Make sure to use the hearphones to play.

Once again Axe manages to surprise us. For sure they don’t lack in originality!!

The Honda Eco (and cheesy) Grand Prix

on August 10, 2009 by Martina Comments

At first sight you would say it is just another racing game. Make sure not to skip the intro, and you will change your mind. Honda Formula E is an advergame launched in Japan to teach people how to drive with an eco-friendly attitude.

In the game you don’t have to use the steering-wheel, but just the brake and accelerator to find the ideal speed to drive in the city, saving gasoline, and therefore saving the planet.

The smallest advergame ever

on February 19, 2009 by Martina Comments

German agency Jung von Matt has joined forces with French web developer Mathieu ‘P01′ HENRI to produce the smallest advergame ever. It sits in 16*16 pixels or, better, in a favicon. The progject has been conceived to promote a very small car: the Smart fortwo.

As you can see from the video, banners have been placed on automotive sites to invite people to play. The idea is fun and definitely very creative even if I’m not sure how many people visiting those websites have really appreciated it. Would be interesting to know not only the buzz the advergame will be able to create in the blogosphere, but also the numbers in terms of clickthrough (for example) it generate. via The Ispiration Room

on January 21, 2009 by Martina Comments

This is an advergame for the boys out there who always dreamt of driving a truck (at least for a day). The Swedish developers at Muskedunder Interactive have created a game for Volvo Trucks to experience the challenges of driving a truck.

The game is very nicely developed (although the game screen is way to small) and has a good mix of realism and playability, which explains why it has been played over 40000 times in less than 4 days.
