BEJEWELED STARSWatch Case Study Video
Bejeweled started the match-3 craze, but rather than rest on our laurels, with Bejeweled Stars, we rewrote the rule book on marketing a mobile game. We led with the emotion, rather than focusing merely on game features and graphics. Instead of simply selling another match-3 game, we offered them an escape hatch from their daily lives.
“Go to your shiny place” invited gamers to travel to a land of pure joy. A land that could only belong to them. By leading with this simple human truth, we created a new narrative that was both universal and completely unique. By inviting our audience to imagine their shiny place, we separated Bejeweled Stars from the category and elevated it to the status of digital life-enhancer.
To launch 2K's Evolve game, Team One created an evocative cinematic preview that won Gold for Best Product Announcement at the Game of Marketing Awards.
How do you get people excited about a game they can’t play yet? While you may not be able to give them the game, you can certainly give them the feeling. It started with a logo that captures the character of 2K’s title: Evolve. Team One designed a mark that used four squares and a rectangle equal in size to the squares, separated by a “V” which also means versus. This was an amazing way to express that in the game, four players work together to hunt a giant monster, and it was a design so unexpected that it earned multiple feature articles on gaming sites.
The next step was a cinematic preview as intense as the game. At its core, Evolve is an intense game of hide-and-seek. Set on an alien planet in the distant future, the trailer “Happy Hunting” shows gamers stalking their prey in adrenaline-pumping four-against-one matches, and highlights the various weapons and characters that players may be able to choose from in the game.To build anticipation even more, Team One created the gaming industry’s first-ever downloadable 3-D printable characters, giving users another way to interact with their favorite Evolve characters. The 3-D renderings can also be used as a 360-degree turntable of the characters on the Evolve website. With our help, Evolve quickly became the most successful launch in 2K history.
