A group of six young entrepreneurs started a public campaign to raise funds to finish their latest creation – Tweet Land- the first set of games in the world that play with reality.
Tweet Land turns people’s comments around the world on Twitter in a scene or activity on the game, redefining this way the concept of “real-time gaming”. For instance, if someone writes “meteorite”, a meteorite will immediately appear and change the game.
Tweet Land has several games that are affected by the thousands of tweets around the world. This way, the games are always changing and are different according to what’s being talked about in the Web at that moment.
For example if you’re playing the race game, Route 140, and someone comments on Twitter that they saw a car accident in the real world, a car accident will occur in the game.
The same would happen in the action-game Love City, a city where ‘love’ and ‘hate’ fight each other. Each time somebody tweets something with the word ‘love’, a citizen will try to hug you, an Anti-Care Bear, which defends itself with its weapons that are charged each time somebody comments that they ‘hate’ something in Twitter.
By using the well-known website Kickstarter.com, these costarican innovators hope to go beyond their $7,000 goal, which is the last push they need to present this unique platform designed for iPhone and web browsers.
“This is a key moment, because we don’t count on any kind of financial help, but in case we reach the goal, we will be commited to give you a better product that in the future will even have exclusive versions for iPad, iPod or Android”, they added.
In case the goal is reached, they hope Tweet Land will be launched within 3 months.
