From 2003-2011 we worked with CBBC to create four award winning series of BAMZOOKi.
Bamzooki received a BAFTA nomination and won the “International Prix Jeunesse”.
From 2003 – 2011 we worked with CBBC to create four award winning series of BAMZOOKi - the truly innovative television show for Children.
BAMZOOKi enables children in the UK to design the best ZOOK – (computer-generated creatures that are able to move and behave autonomously) and then to interact
and compete in real time with their virtual creatures.
The programme features cutting edge computer simulations that form the core of a unique television game show experience that was first broadcast on CBBC in March 2004.
More than 1,000,000 children downloaded the Zook creator tools from the official CBBC Bamzooki website.
Gameware used its extensive experience in Artificial Life programming techniques to provide the ZOOK’s autonomous movement and behaviour and integrate this with the BBC's “FreeD” virtual studio system.
This enabled real-time visualisations in a studio setting, resulting in a totally new and exciting entertainment experience.
Bamzooki remains an early but world leading exemplar of mixed reality entertainment.
