Puma – You Vs. Bolt

Client: Beam

Services Provided:
Game Development, and Flash AS3 Development

Description:
In an effort to publicize that Usian Bolt the fastest man in the world wears Puma shoes, Puma commissioned 9K9 to create a game based on the 80s classic arcade game Konomi crack and Field The game we created features the player as a stylized hand that race against Usian Bolt in the 100-meter dash, the faster the player presses the buttons the better their character performs. The game was a phenomenal success and even included Usian Bolt playing the game and racing himself.

This project had a very short delivery deadline, 9K9 had to create this game in less than three week from the awarding of the project, to concept and game development, to the site going live for the start of the 2008 summer Olympics. To add complexity to the project 9K9 had to create a pre-visualization of the game to provide a shoot list and verify the game play concepts.
