Double Fine: Spacebase DF-9 Website

  • Launched: October 2014

Spacebase DF-9 is a space station simulation by Double Fine Productions. As they used to do back in 2014, I made them a one-page “mini-site” that provides a trailer, screenshots, a little information, and links to buy the game.

I had been wanting to experiment with scroll-based animations for a while, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I used the skrollr library to handle all of the animation on the page (including the SVG animation of the gridlines), and it even works on mobile devices.

It was a lot of fun working with assets that were graciously provided straight from the game. I also recreated the computer console from the game in CSS and made some nice chunky buttons (CSS & SVG) to fit the theme.

Sketch of what would become the Spacebase DF-9 website.

As of December 2022, the site is no longer up. View the archived version of the website to see the scrolling animations in action.
