Corporation Pop launches Facebook game for British Council
Manchester-based digital design agency Corporation Pop has developed a Facebook game to inspire young people in the UK to consider international opportunities, as part of the British Council’s Study Work Create campaign.
World of Knowledge is a quiz-based game that encourages players to travel as far around the world as possible by answering a series of location-based questions. Information cards dotted across the globe enable the user to see the opportunities available in a particular country as they tot-up the miles.
Players must fly a plane to a chosen destination, building up their fuel reserves by answering questions correctly. Players can share their scores and enter them on a leaderboard to be in with a chance of winning a £500 Flight Centre gift card.
Corporation Pop won the brief following a four-way pitch in August 2015.
Dom Raban, managing director at Corporation Pop, said: “The brief required a game that would be simple and accessible while encouraging share and re-play. The elements of competition and reward will drive re-playability and generate new interest. This is a great example of game-based learning being used to drive audience engagement and promote a better understanding of different cultures.”
