Using baseball as a creative analogy for self-promotion, Japanese digital agency Bascule is leveraging the tremendous popularity of the sport in with a site dubbed "Makyu Royale."

Though the text is almost completely in Japanese, the intriguing, vivid animation and functionality of the site is enough to entice users to play a quick game on the diamond. Here, visitors can use a pre-existing pitch or create their own "Makyu" or miracle ball, to strike out the batter and win the game.

Bascule set the scene in the ninth inning with the bases loaded, the cheerleaders screaming and the crowd roaring. Using customized Makyus created in-house by staff as a starting point, Bascule allows a user to pick from a variety of pitches and deliver, then customizing their own by entering in a variety of data.
