A quick turnaround Wordle clone to raise awareness of environmental issues.
The International Institute for Environment and Development approached me to create a variant of the popular game Wordle that raised awareness of environmental issues, called A Greener Worldle. This came about after I created my own clone - mardle - to help my marketing students with some revision of key words.
They wanted to customise the text, tweak the branding slightly, and feature a word list all about the environment. We also included some cookieless analytics using Matomo to get the headline figures on the number of people who had visited the site and where from.
This was all briefed and completed within five days to capitalised on the growth of the game's format.
The game took off. According to the IIED's own blog and analytics figures more than 5,500 people played the game within the first 48 hours.
I'd say that's a pretty good result.
