Whetting fans' appetites with an online taste of Puzzle Quest 2

To promote their upcoming Nintendo DS title, D3 Publisher wanted to give Facebook fans an opportunity to try the game right in their web browser.

We designed and built a custom "Mage Trainer" version of the game in Flash, compressing and optimizing gameplay to provide Facebook fans with an introduction to the game's characters, spells, weapons, and techniques.

To help spread the word virally, we added social features so players could challenge their friends to a high score and view personalized leaderboards.

Though it was only intended to be an introduction to the real game, the Mage Trainer launched to great reviews for its exceptional replayability, and gained over 50,000 active players — all of whom were encouraged to pick up a copy of the Nintendo DS game to continue the adventure.
