To celebrate the beta release for MailChimp‘s new postcards, they made this awesome video game One Pager called Post Haste. After you’re briefed you control Freddie (their mascot) to deliver mail while dodging fun obstacles. What a good time and a quality homage to the classic Paperboy game!
Designer @chasethomas was looking for an excuse to work on one. When he heard postcards would be a future channel for us, he had 2 thoughts: 1) "Cool!" 2) "Wouldn’t it be funny if we made a game where our mascot Freddie delivers mail?" And so "Post Haste" was born. This was a fun side project for our design team, who worked on everything from character animations to sound effects. "It was made with love," Chase says.
