Landmines:
the U.S. administration must back down.


On January 31, President Donald Trump reverted to the Obama administration’s policy prohibiting the US military from using mines in conflicts around the world. More than 20 years after the signing of the Ottawa Mine Treaty by 164 countries (80% of the nations), President Trump's decision represents a murderous policy change. 

Handicap International, with its agency La Chose, is launching a digital operation to collect signatures for a petition calling on the states signatory to the Ottawa Treaty to use all their weight to back down the Trump administration. The operation is called "Retro gaming against Retro Weapons" because mines must remain a weapon of the past. We use the world famous game of Minesweeper to raise awareness on this subject. The user then start a game against the Trump administration.

8-BIT ART

Landmines must remain weapons of the past. We therefore named the operation "Retro Gaming against Retro Weapons". As we use the world famous game of Minesweeper to approach this subject, it is naturally that we chose an artistic direction based on the pixels of the "8-bit" games of our childhood.
We hope that you will be nostalgic with the "letter by letter" apparition of the typography, the shape of the buttons and texts boxes. We also used these small png sequences looping in the background to bring that retro feeling.

Animations

To animate the face of the president as well as the American symbols, we used Lottie, a JSON-based animation. The rendering is vector and lightweight, which allows us to use it on all platforms. We drew the elements on Illustrator and thanks to the Bodymovin plugin, we animated them on After Effect.

The website is of course responsive. The main question about the game was knowing where to place the cursor between practicality and difficulty. It is more pleasant to have large boxes on the Minesweeper, but if there are few, the game becomes too easy. We have a grid of 12 boxes, each 30 pixels, which seems to be a good compromise.
