One of Europe’s leading game developers
Rebellion is the game development studio behind hit games such as Sniper Elite, Aliens vs. Predator, Rogue Trooper and Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron. With a big gaming culture at Kyan, to say we were excited to work with them would be an understatement.
Like many businesses, Rebellion’s website hadn’t evolved with the rest of the brand over time. With stunning assets and great visual talent, they wanted a site that would showcase the brand, their game titles and also their wider product portfolio.
Content is king
The Rebellion team needed a high level of control over their content, which would require great flexibility in the Content Management System we implemented. We worked with the Ruby on Rails Browser CMS, customising and expanding it to suit the client’s specific needs.
Flexibility was also key in terms of how Rebellion’s content was displayed. We produced layouts that adapted to all kinds of different content and also scaled well for mobile users.
Living the brand
One of the challenges we faced was maintaining Rebellion’s edgy branding without overpowering their game visuals. We developed a pattern library using bold colours, torn edges and a ‘spray paint’ lettering to give Rebellion the visual tools they needed to create great looking pages.
