Portfolio - Featured - Phonkers
Conkers is one of those strange British customs that many parents remember fondly from their childhood. However, a combination of health and safety concerns and a preference for electronic games has seen it exit the school playground. Phonkers brings the magic of playground Conkers back to life...with a modern twist.
We wanted to create a mobile game that stayed as true to Conkers as possible - players swing their phone in an arc when striking. We also wanted a simple mechanism to allow children to play their friends. Conkers is, after all, about bragging rights; this becomes a much more powerful driver if you know who you have just beaten. We had fun with the vernacular - "You got phonked" - and the characterisation, which we hope will lend it much broader appeal amongst its target market.
