Overview

Flash Required

Problem » Strategy

In early December 2002, I was a freelancer and had an ebb in client work. I decided to make a little game to try to drum up some work. I shared it share with friends, family and potential clients.

Process

Technically, it's a pretty simple game where the user hits the arrow keys to move the elf to the right and left and the space bar to scoop. I think it's the goofy illustrations that bring a smile to players' faces.

Results

My site logs showed that it was being forwarded for a few months. This project landed me a new client, who I developed a few more Flash-based games for.
