One day, a child playing in a sandbox digs a hole into a cavern beneath the playground. Not the sort to turn down the promise of adventure, the kid jumps into the hole and finds himself in a workshop, overlooking an enormous construction vehicle. The industrious child fashions weapons from the items around the workshop and sets out on a journey to China along the shortest possible route: through the very core of the Earth. But the kid is not alone down here, and strange creatures native to this underground environment are trying to stop him from reaching his destination.

In Imachination, you build your own unique vehicle bursting with quirky gadgets, from regular construction vehicle parts like a shovel to improvised weapons such as a laser cannon made out of a floodlight and a magnifying lens.

In this spectacular machine, you delve into a hole in a sand box and find yourself in an underground world leading to the molten core of the Earth. But you are not alone in these strange subterranean caverns – exciting and funny monsters call these halls their home and will try to stop you from completing your journey to the other side of the Earth.

Experiment with different weapons and tactics to find the best way to defeat the strange monsters and take on their menacing bosses with powerful vehicles just like your own.

Imachination was created by a team of 13 students from 9 different universities and art schools in Denmark, coming together to make a game at The National Academy of Digital, Interactive Entertainment (DADIU). The target audience is children around the age of 6 or 7, and the game was produced with the Unity engine under the constraint that it must be playable using only a mouse and the left mouse button. The game took one month to make, including pre-production, and was finished on May 25th 2010.

Coming soon


Very soon, actually. Like, tomorrow-soon. Promise.

All right, looks like we got a ModDB profile! I'm only posting this so the front page won't look so empty. Game is released tomorrow, hopefully you'll like it*.

There's no chance of slippage, because the project is due tomorrow, so we're totally screwed if we don't hand it in. Just sitting at the office (it's 10 pm in Denmark right now) and taking care of the last few things - putting the credits into the game, testing for the optimal Unity quality settings, and all that jazz. The game is going up on Imachination.dk tomorrow with the help of the Unity web player, but in case you want to play it in full-screen, we'll be uploading it here as well, so you can get it from a trusted source.

More in this space tomorrow, obviously!

* You'll definitely like it.

This is the release version of Imachination as submitted to DADIU on May 25th 2010. It only supports 16:9 aspect ratio, but runs fine in windowed mode...


Heh, I ended up in China. A classic.

Hey Freddy, woah I just checked this page for the first time since release (hence the lack of the promised news, totally forgot this existed!) and saw your post - how incredibly fortunate. No more levels I'm afraid! And no more features either, though your idea of having more puzzley stuff is good.

The team is no longer in contact with each other, and next semester all the teams will be scrambled and put together into new groups for the second and final production. Thanks so much for your interest though!

Hahahah! It's got better control than some point 'n ' clicks I've played.
Visually it's great, and I think the little kids will grasp the controls easy enough.
The sound effects take me back a couple of decades. LOL
Congratulations Team 5, an excellent effort for a game "thrown" together in a month.
