IBM Hot Runback — VR runner game


IBM came up with an idea of creating a runner game to promote their new processors that are “running” faster than the others on the market.

We’ve been asked to develop the experience using the low-poly styling that became popular with the Minecraft game series.

What’s important is that we made the experience short enough, so that we managed to provide over 500 experiences during the first day of the trade show!

As you’re running, you have to collect coins, just like it is in Mario. However, there are also IBM processors that add +100 points to your counter, so that players are hunting for those, getting directly exposed to the product.

At the end of the day, top 10 players received prizes from IBM.
