1 Client: 

The Basque Government Traffic Safety Department

2 Situation: 

Given the complex challenge of making younger people aware of the importance of traffic safety, the Client was looking for an application that allowed users to gain the necessary knowledge and skills regarding road safety but in an interactive and enjoyable manner.

3 Solution: 

Virtualware developed a Serious Game whose objective was to reinforce the importance of safety when moving through the city when walking or cycling. The player must help Heimdal, the town’s superhero, restore calm to Ville city, doing so by completing various missions and catching the local villain. The game becomes an adventure that tests the player’s knowledge about prevention, responsibility, autonomy and road safety.

The interactive game was developed for different platforms: PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), mobile (Android, iOS) and online browsers (Mozilla, Chrome and Internet Explorer).

4 Results: 

Over 100 Basque schools have showed their interest in the app and are beginning to use it to teach students the rules and importance of road safety.
