hhgregg Endless Blitz
If someone is out shopping for televisions in the late summer and early fall, it’s a pretty good bet that person is getting ready for football season. What better way to get their attention than to put them on the field themselves?
That’s why, when hhgregg asked Plow to help them connect with those buyers, Plow’s answer was Endless Blitz. Featuring a running backs scrambling down an endless football field, Endless Blitz challenges players to juke and jump over defenders to collect coins and power-ups. During a Blitz to Win Sweepstakes period, players could score bonus entries to win prizes from hhgregg & LG.
A deal with the Indianapolis Colts allowed players to take to the field as Colts Mascot “Blue,” or they can play as the hhgregg running back, a female football player or the GR-366 Football Robot. In addition, they can try out Flippy Football, a new mini-game.
Created in Unity 3D, Endless Blitz achieved more than 200,000 downloads during the sweepstakes period, and it remains available through iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
Build-a-Bear Merry Mission
Creating a Build-A-Bear toy is a personal experience, so when Build-A-Bear and local, ad agency, CVR, wanted to engage families at Christmastime, Plow delivered an experience that, like the company’s toys, is directed by the user.
With daily surprises, a Christmas countdown, an audio family Christmas story, songs and games, the Santa’s Merry Mission™ app, available on iTunes and Google Play, builds on the story of a Christmas when Santa’s “Nice List” is so long his elves can’t keep up. Who comes to his rescue? His faithful reindeer.
That premise leads users into a series of games, starting with Reindeer Runner, in which Reindeer scramble to gather elves to join in the toy-making effort. Other games include the Gift Grabber and Santa’s Flight Trainer. Players can open up additional opportunities with Official Team Santa Medallions (sold at Build-A-bear Workshop and scanable with an iPhone camera. The app was downloaded more than 100,000 times.
Edwin the Duck
If pi lab had stopped at simply making an adorable rubber duck wireless speaker, the company probably could have done well enough. But pi lab wanted to create something more … something that could delight, entertain and educate children. And that’s where Plow comes in.
Plow created the Edwin App, the iOS-, Android- and Windows- blue tooth enabled device-compatible app that is the key to bringing Edwin’s world to life. Working with educators, musicians and cognitive specialists, Plow and pi lab made sure Edwin delivered a rewarding experience to every child. The Edwin App features stories, games, interactive educational experiences and more.
Yes, Edwin is a wireless speaker, and he is a rubber ducky (Sure! Take him into the tub at bath time!), but he’s also a smart toy designed to make learning fun. With new features and content in constant development, Edwin builds on four key areas: Story Time, Play Time, Song Time and Sleepy Time, and he grows with your child, coming to life with unique stories, songs, and games.
