Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders Game

Client Pan Macmillan

WE WERE ASKED TO…

Create an online game to promote a new series of children’s history books by the comedian, presenter and historian Tony Robinson.

SO WE MADE…

Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders, a narrative-led platform game which takes the player on an amazing adventure through time pointing out all the most important, funny, strange, entertaining and disgusting bits about history. Tony Robinson narrates as players guide Pee Wee and his scruffy dog Nits through the 4 different environments from the books; Rome, Egypt, Greece and Britain. The game was distributed around the web to promote the book and drive traffic to the campaign microsite.

AS A RESULT…

The game’s popularity lead to it becoming key to the marketing campaign for the book series and went on to help PanMacmillan win ‘Best Marketing Campaign’ at the BMS awards.
