Life’s a Game With Gumshoe
May 2, 2011
There’s a new, real-life mobile game of Clue that turns you into the detective and lets you solve mysteries based on the places you go. This fun and intriguing new game is called Gumshoe.
Gumshoe is a gaming platform that’s powered by the content you’re already pushing to the web. It transforms a “check-in” into a rich alternate reality. Everyday social posts, check-ins and friendships are woven into a world of personalized mysteries.
Instead of walking into Starbucks, you’ve just walked right into the crime scene and now it’s up to you to find the culprit. Don’t toss that receipt because it may be evidence! Each clue you find further advances your story and continues to customize the game to your interests and social behaviors. You can compete against your friends and others in your community to gain badges, social cred and sometimes even a real life reward!
Gumshoe was founded earlier this year and is already generating a lot of popularity. In fact, it was the winner at Funded by Night in Chicago just this past weekend. It’s time to spice up your life with a little gamification!
