3 Things We’ve Learned Testing Spogo
Hey Spogo-verse, get excited!!
Testing is underway for the new version of Spogo, which is on track to launch this summer! We’ve been simulating Spogo gameplay with baseball games on TV and here are some interesting things I’ve learned:
1. Baseball is fun to watch! (Yup, I said it.)
Now many of us love baseball, but when is the last time you can say you watched all NINE innings of a game? We can all admit that sometimes it’s just a little slow. But if you Spogo during the game, it starts to fly! From making wagers on who will score next, to predicting how many strikeouts a pitcher will throw or if a mid-game brawl will break out…there’s always something happening.
2. Game Master Zen:
One of my favorite parts about Spogo is that it feels like my bar buddy. The questions have personality, and FLAIR. Some of you may be wondering how we make that happen. Well, there’s always a live “Game Master” behind each game. I’ve taken on the role of lead Game Master, and it’s a blast, but it takes a lot of focus. According to my calculations, Game Mastering is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to MASTER THE GAME!
3. Channel your inner Simon Cowell:
When testing, you’re suddenly a critic, designer, expert, guesser, and techie all at once. You take note of EVERY little bug, and are constantly thinking about how to improve gameplay features. No issue is too small to not be called out. Simon Cowell would be proud! (But he’d probably still insult us).
