EMBARGO Game

EMBARGO, THE FAST PACED GAME WHICH BLOCKS FROM YOU WINNING BUT ALSO TEACHES YOU ABOUT OUR GOVERNMENT.

I set myself the brief of getting young people into talking about politics. When polled in 2015 less than a third of young people aged 18-25 stated they had an interest in politics. I set out to change this in a relatable and easy way. This fast paced betting card game is about collecting a full set by trading with all other players. Once you collect a full set you win the round and collect your winnings, however some cards are replaced with a recession or war card making it impossible for one to collect the full set. Each set has a variety of facts about the specific part of the government it correlates to, these facts will hopefully be discussed once the action of the game has subsided.


Wake Alarm

WAKE ALARM LETS YOU HAVE THE MOST EFFECTIVE SLEEP AND WAKES YOU UP AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE.

The wake alarm is an alarm which has been designed to let you have the most effective sleep and wake you up efficiently. Using an alarm clock over your mobile phone lets you sleep better as you don’t need to sleep so close to it and the light from it will not affect your sleep. The overhang of the design only lets you see the time at specific angles, reducing the anxiety developed through clock watching which so many people suffer from. The alarm then slowly lights up once its near the time to wake up which will wake your eyes up and then will sound an alarm when you have to wake.

The simplicity of the buttons was chosen to mimic Lexon's misleadingly uncomplicated design making it very simple to set the time and the alarm. The large silicone button at the top is just staring at you to be pressed and for the right reasons, this turns off the alarm as well as the light, but once the alarm is off you can turn the light back on if you want to.
