Gaming apps are one of the other ways available on internet for virtual interaction. In gaming apps, one can chat with the co-players over pop up chat box, who remain strangers forever. With, technology advancement one can bid adieu to those chat interactions with strangers and commence a real life face to face interaction instead.
Houstan based start-up company Iinsha apps has developed and launched Spottie app that will guide in person-to-person socialisation.
In this digital era, “Spottie takes advantage of society’s obsession with their phones while getting people outside and communicating in person again! We’re here to promote people by bringing them back to face-to-face and help those who are introverted and those who are extroverted, to meet new people and make real genuine connections.” (as posted in Iinsha’s official blog post)
Spottie was created with the intention of getting players to interact face-to-face and make real-life connections on the go! The game is interactive and thrilling according to the app which engages players with a scope to socialise. Not only that the game has a feature to choose various chat options to choose from. The app will be supported on android and iOS devices.
Here’s how the game works according to the synopsis from Iinsha:
After signing in to Spottie, check in to your location and hit play to initiate a game! Then, every minute descriptive hint about the other player will appear on your screen. Keep your eyes focused on your surroundings to eliminate your prospects to make your way to face-to-face interaction! You also have the option to let someone find you by accepting game invites! Once a player is found, both users earn points by scanning the Spottie QR code. The faster a player is found, the more points you both receive!
Spottie has the option for privacy so one can take call on what to share and what not to be shared on Spottie. Personalized profile allows: to keep track of stats, check-in history, and share photos. Unlike most social games, one has control on their own privacy. Initially when co players enjoy each other’s company but are not comfortable sharing phone number or email id to co players they can call and message directly to the person on Spottie app without phone number and email id.
With the launch of the game Iinsha announced a half a million dollars in cash prizes special for the top Spottie players in 2019. The contest will start on 1 January 2019 and will end on 31 December 2019!
