If one is looking for investment then the pre-social media era of the early 2000 American idol might look like an odd place. But it is also noticeable that how these types of shows became a big hit and became a part of the live social commentary.
The FameGame team is looking forward to answer all the buzzing questions through their app which is being expected to give rebirth to the live reality TV on your Smartphone. The new launch will involve a mix of American idol, musical.ly and HQ Trivia with young talents who are looking to make a name on the social media and earn gold and cash.
The CEO of FameGame, Alexndra Botez, realized the importance of this concept after streaming on Twitch where he played chess and came to know that how to bring the potential viewers to the less gaming-focused verticals.
The CEO of FameGame said “We thought that the interactivity of live gaming could also be applied to make conventional TV more entertaining,” Botez tells TechCrunch. “We think Musical.ly and Instagram are pretty big so it’s hard for them to change their infrastructure in such a way that they make the type of immersive experience that we’ve created with FameGame.”
The game of fame is played by FameGame through allowing users to upload a Smartphone video f their talent. The challenges change according to the week but one competitor can focus on dancing while other can focus on rap or maybe magic tricks. After a particular time, the users can check what has been uploaded and they can also see the number of votes for their favorite uploads.
You might think that it is all for the cash prize but you should know that the main aim behind this concept is social validation. Talking about the other prizes of the game, the winner will also get a shoutout from celebrities on Musical.ly. The concept of the FameGame, its rules, and other systems might look like HQ Trivia but the live voting adds a more community vibe to the platform.
The CTO of FameGame, Ruben Mayer-Hirshfeld told to Techcrunch that “We decided to go with young teenage girls because they are really obsessed with becoming famous on social media and they spend a lot of time on Musical.ly posting videos and not necessarily getting the gratification that they might want,”
