Top 6: December 17th 2014
Following the remarkable success of the 'Dumb Ways to Die' smartphone and tablet game, Metro Trains have released a follow up title available on the iTunes App Store. Created by McCann Melbourne and produced by local developer Millipede, ‘Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games’ builds on the remarkable success of the franchise to date and will also be available for Android. A hit with young people, the first Dumb Ways to Die game went to number one on the iTunes App Store in over 21 countries, clocking up over 70 million downloads and over 1.2 billion plays. The game successfully extended the Dumb Ways to Die campaign following the initial phase of viral campaign, generating millions of hours of engagement with the rail safety message. Building on the gameplay of the first title, 'The Games' sees players cast as new sporting Dumb Ways to Die characters, competing in athletic-style mini-games across three arenas in an attempt to claim the coveted 'Dumbest of the Dumb' title. Gameplay arenas include Freezerville, the Dumb Dome and Drown Town and are all connected by train travel and only accessible once a train safety game is complete.
