The Sandal Castle interactive was produced
by The Works during their redesign of Wakefield Museum. The
Interactive was designed and developed by Liquid Studios
director, Matthew Robson, whilst under the employ of The Works.
Sandal Castle itself is now in ruins, and
designing the 3D walkthough sequences which feature heavily
in the interactive
required close collaboration with preeminent
historian and castle researcher - Lawrence Butler. The interactive
was designed from the beginning to tell the Castles
story - from its wooden first incarnation in the 11th century,
to its eventual destruction during the English Civil War.
The 3D sequences were built in Newteks
Liqhtwave, with the interactive itself being composted in
Macromedia Director. Additional Artwork created In Macromedia
Freehand and Adobe Photoshop.
You can see a sample of the 3D sequences
from this interactive on our showreel which you can download
