The Cursed Cursor is a web-toy where the user is on a video call with an annoying boss character. While they drone on and on, the user can poke and irritate them with the cursor. Who wouldn’t want to do that!? Have a go below.

The Cursed Cursor

Creatives Bekki, Vicky and Sam started brainstorming ideas around the title ‘The Cursed Cursor’—the challenge was to make a piece within five days. Something where the viewer can cause chaos!

They cooked up some devious ones as you can see from the sketches below, but we all agreed the video call idea was the most satisfying.

With the fast turnaround of this collaboration the team went head-first into the process, from concepting ideas and storyboarding through to design, animation and digging into Rive’s state machine, where all the interactive magic happens.
