Best Advertising Online Video, Best Social Network Online Video

Tasked by 2K Games International to introduce the eagerly awaited game, we decided to blur the lines of traditional gaming promotion and YouTube trailers and do the same time.

The result is an original interactive user experience that allowed fans to get the feel of actual gameplay without ever leaving YouTube. Following a “Choose Your Own Adventure” style path, we first re-created an entire game level from scratch and then added specific points to the gameplay that triggered specific videos based on the user choice. This was done via a special modification to the YouTube API's "annotation" function.

Depending on overall path they chose, users could be immersed in the experience for as long as 18 to 20 minutes offering not only a unique experience but an extended stay within the brand.
