Department For Transport Spent £2.8 Million

Recommended Posts

Not only did they spend a fortune on this, they didn't even use a UK developer! :angry:

The UK Department for Transport had spent £2.8 million on a road safety awareness game that has flat-lined in popularity for months, new data suggests.

Browser game Code of Everand was built to encourage better road safety standards among young people.

But the Transport Department had to wait two years for the project to launch, and had to fund further development for another two years.

Internal documents show the final bill, for over four years of development, stands at £2,785,695.

A Freedom Of Information request on the data, lodged by blogger Simon Dickson, shows that US studio Area/Code was paid annual sums over four years.

The game’s total 170,000 registered users represents a cost of over £16 for each player.
