Recycling and Economic Development Initiative of South Africa (REDISA)
Fleishman Hillard SA
Fleishman Hillard asked Brave to conceptualise, design and build a game that would entertain and educate users about the benefits and opportunities of waste management for the Recycling and Economic Development Initiative of South Africa (REDISA)
Challenges & Solutions
Brave created a progressive, roleplaying game that lets players choose a character and enter the waste stream industry as a waste-picker. By playing the game and moving up the levels, the player’s character ultimately ends up running a waste management and recycling empire.
There are missions to accept, and perils to dodge along the way, so players need to discover how to overcome rabid dogs, wasps, clouds of pollution, acid rain, and zombie rats.
The game was developed using Unity, and features original illustrations, and multiple levels of difficulty.
Watch the game-play
Levels were made up of many layers of assets.
First a grid of interlocking background tiles were placed to make up streets, gardens, parks and parking lots.
On top of this, individual buildings, walls, bollards, traffic lights and street lights were placed.
We designed a diverse set of main avatars which the player could choose from and play through the game with.
- Released on Android (Google Play Store), IOS (Apple), and Microsoft
- Original character and 'game-world' screen illustrations
- Multiple levels, with increasing difficulty as players progress
- Complex, creative gameplay (including missions and perils), with highly engaging results for users
