GameChanger Launch Party

IMG_1872_v

I covered the GameChanger Launch Event yesterday at The Encore Event Center where this years Skate and Surf will be held on May 18th and 19th. The day was about introducing mobile gaming apps with the characters being members of select bands like T Mills, Bayside, Senses Fail and more. The artists have never tried or seen the apps until yesterday at the launch party. It was great to watch as members of Bayside, Senses Fail and T Mills played the apps with their fans on a level that you usualy don’t see that often. John D feels that the concert business is on a huge downslide and that mobile gaming apps allowing the fans to be the band members will help the artists create a source of revenue that has been taken away from them by the high and mighty record labels. The Artists are doing all the work and everyone else is making the money while the artists are trying to get from gig to gig on sometimes just enough money for gas. In return for fans playing the games and purchasing extras to be able to enter and possibly win contests they will be rewarded by the bands for investing time and money. It will also allow fans to interact with the bands while the show is going on which can only enhance a fans experience at a show. The gaming industry id huge of all ages and I agree that it is a great way to have the fans be part of the show and not just be there. Everyone wants to leave with a great experience and thats what John D is trying to create.
