Resident Evil 2 Influencer Event

WHAT DID WE DO?

  • We flew in top gaming influencers in the Gulf and Middle East region to have a meet and greet with Resident Evil 2 remake producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and director Kazunori Kadoi.
  • Branded the entrance of Hub Zero Dubai with Resident Evil 2 artwork and created a 80 meter tunnel to get a the dark atmosphere of the video game. Influencers were also given branded flashlights to guide them through the tunnel.
  • The influencers also had the chance to play exclusive content and record their gameplay for their own content distribution.
  • All influencers had the opportunity to interview the producer and director one-on-one, plus get signed T-shirts!

HOW DID WE DO IT?

  • An 80 m long tunnel was constructed inside Hub Zero – where influencers would walk through to get to the other side – avoiding obstacles in their way. The tunnel, combined with the soundtrack of the original Resident Evil 2 helped simulate the survival horror that is – Resident Evil.
  • We used Large Format Stickers on the entrance, plus life-size cutouts scattered in the tunnel and around the event venue.
  • Flashlights and T-shirts were custom designed for the event. The T-shirts were also personally signed by the Director and Producer of RE2 and were given to all the influencers as memorabilia of what took place.
