Arkade aims to make you leave the keyboard and mouse (or joystick, we don’t discriminate) behind, and provide you with a whole new level of immersion. The Arkade Blaster redefines FPS gaming with an easy-to-use motion-sensitive rifle. Getting started is simple; all you need is the Arkade Smartphone Blaster, a smartphone, and a compatible game. The Arkade 360 Gaming Blaster gives you a full 360-degree immersion. So, pair up, and get working on that K/D ratio!
Stop playing games. Start living them.
Visionary product, visionary design
The Arkade Blaster brings a whole new dimension to gaming. Our approach to the design was no different. The goal was to create a unique aesthetic that does justice to a truly transformative product.
Thus, immersion became the name of the game. The Arkade Blaster controller brings you closer to your favorite games, and the design follows that philosophy by providing a meticulous look into the Blaster, covering every little nook and cranny. We’ve left no stone unturned.
Fitting for the topic, we wouldn’t settle for less than 3D. To achieve the highest level of detail and the lowest strain on performance, we’ve used GSAP to render a custom-made model of the Arkade Motion Blaster. The ambient lighting was achieved using a gradient on the environmental map, resulting in a realistic two-tone warm/cold shading on the Blaster. Shadows were painted to bring out the fine details, and make the model look much more complex than it actually is. The cherry on top is the addition of post-processing to make the Arkade 360 Gaming Blaster indicators glow.
Making intricate simple
A fascinating product requires an in-depth dive into all the features it offers, and the Arkade Blaster controller is far from short on features. The product feature was built with natural progression in mind. Show off the Blaster in all its glory first, then show the many things the Blaster can do and the supported platforms with their respective titles. However, a product page isn’t complete without the human aspect; thus, testimonials were introduced, and to further captivate potential buyers, we’ve added YouTube videos. Nothing speaks as loud as seeing the product in action.
But that’s not all. The Arkade Battle Pack follows a similar format, and even includes a Call of Duty easter egg!
Every product requires documentation. Our approach to the FAQ and Guides for the Arkade Motion Blaster was focused on ease of access and visual appeal. Nobody likes to read walls of text (we’re looking at you, Terms & Conditions), especially when it means delaying satisfaction. The questions and their answers were concise and sorted by relevance. Getting the needed information in front of you as quickly as possible was our highest priority. Less reading, more Blasting.
A product we believe in
We like to pick projects close to our heart, and the Arkade Blaster is no different. Working on the Arkade project was exciting to us because we all play games, and truly believe in the Blaster as an innovative, captivating product like no other. The sequel to Duck Hunt we’ve all been waiting for is here.
At Báchoo, we love your products and the design reflects it.
