Shaun's Game Academy

Client Nominet Trust


Develop an initiative to inspire and empower children to make games partnering with the Nominet Trust.


A website which offers a collection of activities to help children learn the fundamentals of game design, a wealth of resources including purpose-built Shaun the Sheep assets and a selection of game modules developed in Scratch to allow children to pull them apart to create their own games. A series of interviews we filmed with UK gaming heroes provide advice, tips and inspiration ultimately encourage children to make their own games in Scratch and enter into a competition.

as a result…

The project received nationwide recognition engaging over 40,000 people across schools, code clubs and families. Three awesome games have been selected from the competition with winners getting the opportunity to spend a day with developers at Aardman to fine tune and enhance their game.
