Project Case Study: Revolution Software
Revolution software are one of the worlds leading producers of adventure video games. They have won numerous industry awards for their games, in particular the multi-million selling and hugely successful Broken Sword series.
The combined online views for the videos we have produced now top 500,000 on Revolutions YouTube channel alone. This does not account for the numerous other review sites, newspapers and forums who also feature this content. It is estimated the total viewership worldwide for this content now exceeds 1 million.
“Rolling Snowballs set a new benchmark with the Kickstarter campaign, showing everyone else how it should be done.
Their films have been a hugely valuable tool for promoting our games”
Selected images from various shoots for Revolution Software
In 2012 Revolution approached us to provide a film to front a Kickstarter campaign aimed at securing the finance to produce a fifth installment in the Broken Sword series.
The resulting film was central to attracting interest in the campaign and explaining it's goals and aims. The project was incredibly successful with the film being shown on British, German and French television and attracting well over 100,000 online views, as well as a screening at the BAFTA video games awards.
During the 30 day campaign we were required to devise and provide several update videos to maintain the momentum of the initial film.
The result was we exceeded the target of amount of $400,000 by more than double with just over $800,000 raised through Kickstarter and PayPal investments.
2013 - 2014 Game Promos
Broken Sword: The Serpents Curse was ultimately released in two parts. Episode 01 in Winter 2013 and Episode 02 in Spring 2014.
We devised and produced several promotional films to promote various releases of the two episodes on different platforms including PC/Mac, PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android.
In Game Material
During the production of the game we also provided various cut-scene videos and contributed to the audio design for the end game finale.
