The Zaans Museum

For the Zaans Museum we developed five games about the Zaans food industry. The purpose of the games is to teach high school students about the food industry and about the different professions. We interviewed five different people with different professions within the food industry namely an Engineer, Operator, Laboratory worker, Planner and Designer. We based these five games around their stories and experience, and involved them in our game development process.

The games are all build with the help of openFrameworks. Building a decent rendering engine with the right tools ( for example : a decent tweening library and a decent openGL shader implementation ) proved to be a challenging task. However, after the fundament was build, we could start production at a very high speed.
