The client is a chain of arcades which has over 800 game arcades across Asia. In recent years, parents are earnest about children’s education. They tend to think that game arcade is bad for children’s education, growth, and it’s something unhealthy. We needed to overturn this prejudice. We had our eye on an old game, “air hockey” which has been in every one of their stores for years and recreated it as a brand-new intellectual training game “GRID AIR HOCKEY”. Players can make their original stage on the board with gird and choose the favorite “smasher” from unique 7 kinds. With enormous combinations of blocks and smashers, the game offers greater expandability and flexibility which have never been achieved in existing game arcades. “GRID AIR HOCKEY” is now introduced in their 50 stores.

クライアントは、アジア全域に800以上の店舗を持つゲームセンターの世界最大のチェーン。親たちにとってゲームセンターは、子どもの教育に不健全なものというイメージは根強くある。この先入観を覆すべく、どの店舗にもある古い体感ゲーム「エアホッケー」に目をつけ、全く新しい知育ゲーム「GRID AIR HOCKEY」として甦らせた。プレイヤーが自由にステージをつくれ、個性の異なるスマッシャーから好きなものを選べるデザインだ。ブロックとスマッシャーの組み合わせは無限大であり、従来のゲームセンターにはなかった、遊びの拡張性と自由度を獲得した。導入店舗は現在50店にまで拡がっている。
