Mercedez-Benz Bus Profi

This was a web project I did with my friend Mattias Stridsman. It was flash based web game for Mercedez-Benz bus division in Germany. We did this job with Chris Hildenbrand heading up as producer and design by a group of students in Germany.

The concept was a set of mini-games, one unlocked every week. The aim was to encourage young people to get a bus driving license. For the best player there was a grand price of a paid trip to the soccer world cup for all his/her friends. The project ran for 3 months.

I was in charge of the php/mysql based backend which served the player profiles and score board. Since this was a competition we spent alot of time securing the communication interface, to prevent cheating. We also wanted a stable and reliable system.
