Simple Web commissioned us to create the graphics for the Death by Orgasm game produced for the adult company Love Honey, to be distributed as viral advertising for their new Silver Bullet product range via Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The friends were taken from the player’s Facebook friends list and represented by their avatars which were dynamically loaded into the game. When the player won or lost their friends were notified and challenged to play and beat their friend’s score.
It was a very simple game, but it had the quality of dark humour in its grotesque death sequences that appealed to its target audience. We had a lot of fun creating our own sound effects to add to the scary and funny mood of the game.
A lot of energy and thought went into the visual style of the game site and after much discussion we chose a theme based on 60s horror cartoons, with a fruit machine style gameplay.
If you dare to pit your wits against the evil ghouls and risk the demise of your friends, you can play the game yourself here! www.deathbyorgasm.com
Probably not a good idea to send a challenge to your near-relatives though…
Here are some of the designs that didn’t make it into the final game design – but we thought you’d enjoy seeing them:
