Sometimes you get a Flash interactive project that is just great fun to work on … this was one of them.

While working at Martian Design I had the opportunity to develop a series of Flash based games for the mintshot.co.nz website. This was one of my favourites. The goal of the game was to disarm a bomb and save your prize from exploding. If you saved it, you won it.

I worked closely with Tony from Martian Design and we conceptualised the game, the sequences and the Flash interaction that was required. We came up with a look for the game and then Tony got to work on the majority of the artwork and  I got to spend some time in Adobe After Effects creating the inevitable explosion sequence.

Tony used a combination of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Maxon Cinema 4D in creating the bomb casing and internals. I used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Adobe After Effects to create the explosion sequence and I then put the entire project together in Adobe Flash.

I really enjoy using Adobe After Effects and being able to integrate After Effects with Flash interactive is something that I’m looking to do a lot more of in the future.
