The PSFK consulting team has noticed that as social media becomes more mainstream, it is becoming an integral aspect of gaming by making new experiences possible.One company operating in this space is Tweetland–a company that has created a game using experiences reported on Twitter to create in-game content. ‘TweetLand’ is the first videogame in the world that plays with reality by factoring in real life experiences from people all over the world using Twitter messages to create content inside the game that will affect gameplay. Some events affect the game to help the player, while other events provide challenges and difficult situations that the player will have to confront. For example, if a user in New York reports a traffic accident on Twitter, the gameplay may reflect that event, turning the tweets of the real world into events in the virtual world. PSFK spoke to the founders of TweetLand about their game[…]
As many of you may know, the game is now ready and we are working on the final details of the campaign’s launch! One of these details is an uber important mega cool trailer. We are working on a nice script to go with it, and we want to include you in it! Our plan is to involve tweetlanders all over the world to be featured in Tweet Land´s official game trailer. To do this, we’d like to encourage all of you to record a video of yourselves using an iOS device - similar to the video we are attaching with this message.
The idea is to collect videos of people worldwide using an iPhone, iPod or iPad at different iconic locations - this way, when editing we can show in the trailer people of the world using their device to tweet and/or play Tweet Land. Because of post-production reasons, we would need for you not to show the device’s screen (similar to the reference video we are attaching).
If you possess high video filming/editing skills and know-how, that’s perfect! Just try to record it with the same techniques used in the reference video - focus, illumination, composition, etc. If you don’t, thats also ok! Do what you can and send us your video!
- Have fun! Show a smile to the camera! ;)
- Avoid showing your iOS device’s screen.
- Try to don’t show flags, brands or any similar stuff.
- Use the same techniques used on the reference video (focus, illumination, composition, etc.).
- Record the video in some nice location that somehow represents the place you are from (for example, if you’re from NY, recording yourself in Central Park or 5th Avenue would be a good idea).
- Record in HD (720p).
We’re taking any length and video format videos; send as many takes and/or videos as you want!
We will choose the best videos and include them on the trailer. To all tweetlanders that send us their videos: we will give 1 limited edition Tweet Land postcard signed by all the team members to one lucky winner.
If you are interested in being featured in the first trailer of the first game that plays with reality, send us your video, download link, or YouTube link to imFamous@tweetlandgame.com. The deadline will be November 1st.Hurry up! Maybe your friends could watch you on the next GameTrailer´s or IGN´s featured videos!
Note: Needless to say, by sending your video you are allowing us to use it in our official trailer. :)
Hi tweetlanders, how are you doing? We are great!
Since the end of the Kickstarter project we have been working really hard in every detail of the game. Today we are glad to announce that as a special gift, now we are adding some bonus remixes of the original songs to the full OST of the game.
As gamers, we have been influenced seriously by games such as Mega Man, Sonic, F-Zero, Chrono Trigger, Metal Slug and many many many more. You will definitely notice that, not only in the game art and gameplay, but also in the music. By now we are showing you what we are doing with the soundtrack.
A month ago we only had an idea, and thanks to all of you now we are close in making it a reality!
Thanks for all the support, comments, recommendations, and above all for the incredible vibe we have perceived from all of you. These are the things that motivates us the most to keep on working hard in Tweet Land and provide a new approach on videogame development. It’s a big dream, but all of you helped us in believing that it’s possible!
319 backers helped through Kickstarter.com, with pledges that went from $1 up to $ 1.000 for a final total amount of $8613. An extra $300 were donated directly to our costa rican bank account, which was destined for such use. Also, Bar El 13 contributed by donating 13% of their customer’s consumption total in the “Noche Tweet Land” event they hosted on Monday, April 15th to support the videogame’s creation. Yay!
The next step in this journey is making this game really AWESOME! By now, that would be all. Down you can find some FAQs, but if you have any other question, please feel free to comment it here, or write us email@example.com. Also if you are even more interested, you can download our press kit here.
Thanks to all of you!!
The happy Tweet Land teamFAQs
