In January 2021, Fictioneers (a then collaboration of Potato, Tiny Rebel Games and Sugar Creative; in partnership with animation studio, Aardman) launched Wallace’s & Gromit’s first foray into Augmented Reality - Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up, a free app available on iOS (link) and Android (link).
The project was born out of funding from UK Research & Innovation, with a grant to explore pioneering interactive storytelling and audiences of the future.
In the first adventure in over a decade, the entrepreneurial duo’s new business venture Spick & Spanners, takes fans on a contract to fix up Bristol, the home of Aardman. Players can sign up to become an employee of Spick & Spanners and help Wallace and Gromit get out of trouble. Through a host of augmented reality gameplay, CG animations, in-character phone calls, extended reality (XR) portals, and comic strips, fans become a crucial part of the story. However, when designing such an innovative real-time experience, Fictioneers realised a tool didn’t exist that enabled creative teams to design real-time stories, timelines and activities whilst integrating various supporting transmedia.
So we built a bespoke software platform to power the experience: the Fictioneers platform.
