Description

‘Garfield vs Hot Dog’ is a seriously entertaining adventure game for children worldwide. It is a unique crossover between an entertainment game and a serious game. The game is created for tablet devices and PC, and is based on the Garfield IP to allow for maximum reach. Garfield is a very well-known and well-liked character. The game will be loads of fun to play, while still being effective in delivering an intrinsically motivating learning experience. In ‘Garfield vs Hot Dog”, Garfield, Jon and dog Odie travel to several cities around the world to take action against Hot Dog, who has taken over the world with his fast food empire. By completing missions and playing mini games, Garfield can counter the unhealthy developments and gradually conquer the cities one by one, precinct by precinct. Using funny mini games in the different cities we want to bring about attitude and behavioral change toward healthy lifestyles while the children have fun playing the game.

History

Origin

Obesity is a problem for children around the world and is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, strokes and cancer. We believe we can help children discover a healthy lifestyle by providing them with a fun and entertaining game. By using appealing gameplay mechanics we will engage a global audience and create massive impact.

Grendel Games

Grendel Games is a development studio of seriously entertaining games and was founded in 2003. With a lot of enthusiasm we strive to create truly entertaining games with real educational value. Our games are all innovative, immersive experiences and sometimes they can change the world. We feel that all of our games should be ‘seriously entertaining’. Over a period of more than 10 years Grendel Games has grown to around 16 people. That’s still small enough to be informally creative, but big enough to be one of the most prominent in the world of serious games. The games that Grendel Games create all give practical and results-oriented solutions for serious problems. For example: motivating children during their rehabilitation exercises (Gryphon Rider) or effecting lower water peak loads (Wijk & Water Battle). In addition, we try to give all of our products an identity of their own. Every game should be original in some way. A visual style, some never-before- seen control scheme or the translation of clinical training into gameplay elements can all set a game apart.
