the client_

Based in Grimsby, Red Herring Games are a multi-award winning company that provide a huge range of games all over the world. Specialising in murder mystery, they can even develop games that are completely bespoke! Additionally, Red Herring host live murder mystery events and parties throughout the year with trained actors and these have been moved online.

the problem_

Each of Red Herring’s games have a large character booklet for the game play and instructions, which are customised to each client. An average character booklet is 8 pages, so if it is a 10 player game, the document would be 80 pages long! Our mission was to find a way to split the large documents into separate booklets to make them easier to change to reduce the need for expensive reprints.

the solution_

In this case the solution was simple – we created a web application that takes the documents containing every booklet and splits them based on the number of pages entered by the user, saving them as individual documents. The application can do this in bulk and because it’s in the cloud not only can it be used from any computer in the world but it also boasts impressive speeds irrespective of the user’s computer.


Huge saving

A fresh approach

Because we approached the problem in a new and creative way we were able to save Red Herring Games thousands of pounds as opposed to other solutions.
