BBC Taster – Mates Vs Monsters

Mates Vs Monsters was a personalised game experience created for BBC Taster.

Originating from the idea of creating an RPG from social data, the project evolved into a fully-fledged hybrid between game, quiz and story engine.

Users connect with Twitter, assign friends to the quest and then traverse a dungeon, using the knowledge of their social network to succeed. The experience was contextualised by a fun tongue-in-cheek story, and visualised with quirky artwork by Happy Toast.

Built in-house, the pilot and underpinning logic has the potential to create any number of personalised data-powered experiences – from games, to more abstract social profiling/content curation tools.
