Prevent Fires is a game designed to teach fire safety with respect to building design. A player is given a floor plan and a set of fire safety devices (such as smoke detectors, pull alarms, exit signs, etc.) to install throughout. Once the player decides where to install the safety devices, they trigger a fire simulation. If all of the devices were placed correctly, the building inhabitants escape unharmed. There are 3 levels to the game, each one dealing with different, increasingly sophisticated devices.
My role was to design and then direct this project from start to finish. After winning the pitch I worked closely with the client, 3d artists and the developers from Hirsch & Mann to produce the game. I also developed a render pipeline to efficiently produce the 3D-rendered sprites for the game.
