Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Gaming / Online Games / 2008

The Science Museum appointed Preloaded to develop an online game to promote the reopening of its redesigned Launchpad exhibition, as well as to run on kiosks within the gallery itself. They required the game to teach 8 to 14 year-olds the basic scientific principles of physics in an engaging manner, while remaining fun rather than overtly educational. The game features 36 levels of increasingly more challenging physics related puzzles. There is also a level editor that allows users to create and share levels with friends, the best of which are also featured on the site, meaning the game is always growing.
