Aardman Animations itself has partnered with Fictioneers for this new Wallace and Gromit story, their first in over a decade, and follows their latest business venture Spick & Spanners which takes on the challenge of fixing up Bristol. You play as a new employee of the company and can interact with the characters and story in a variety of different ways.
Using cutting edge AR technology, Fictioneers has created an experience that allows players to interact in all sorts of new ways that allows them to get close than ever to Wallace and Gromit.
“We believe it’s a first-of-its-kind experience, part of our vision to harness multiple technologies, media types and formats to tell enhanced, collaborative and immersive stories in real time,” said Scott Ewings from Fictioneers. “To do this, we have developed a software platform, the MUST Platform, to enable creative teams to design real-time stories, timelines and activities and then integrate a variety of transmedia to support those stories. With The Big Fix Up, we have created a new, rich and multi-layered experience, where, for the first time ever, YOU can become part of Wallace & Gromit’s story.”
Merlin Crossingham, the Creative Director of Wallace and Gromit at Aardman added: “Wallace & Gromit have innovation, gadgets, and technology at the comedic heart of their world. Working with Fictioneers to create The Big Fix Up has been a perfect fit, allowing us to bring the duo’s fantastic fictional contraptions right into our audiences homes using the latest real technology.”
