This is a serious game for carpenters made for the Swiss agency “Phirstfilm Productions GmbH” and the Swiss insurance “Suva“.

To create this interactive Flash 3D application, we’ve used the most modern technology from Adobe, Stage3D. Thanks to this new technology it’s now possible to produce high quality 3D games in Flash.

Through this interactive Serious Game and the 3D animations, students and workers can learn how to use correctly six stationary machines for woodworking.

At the start of the game the player can rotate the main building within the six machines and their respective names. After learning the name of the different machines, the player can click on one of them to start the test.

After choosing the machine the camera gives the user an overview of it. At every point of the game the player is able to have a 360° view of the game using the mouse.

Every device has different workshops and every workshop has different steps.

By every step the camera focalizes the parts that the player has to correctly set through sliders and drag&drop.

If the player don’t sets the machine correctly, the game will shows wich parts of the selected machine were wrongs.

The player wins the game only if all the workshops of all six machines have been successful completed.

To understand how to win, the player has to learn through the 3D animations of the official game page how to safely use the machines.


It’s possible to play the game in 3 different languages (italian, german and french) directly on the Web or if you want you can order a DVD (includes the game and the 3D animations) directly from the official game homepage for free!
