I just read this anouncement covered at softpedia . If there was a contest for fitting sexy buzz-words into one press announcement, this would surely win. Here’s the highlights:

  • CBS Interactive and the Hong Kong-based company Artificial Life announced they will launch the first avatar-based mobile game tied to “America’s Next Top Model.”
  • It’s debuting in US, then HK, then other countries
  • Cost of game in US will be $5.99 
  • Players get an avatar, which is a representation of an actual show contestant.
  • Players need to choose their favorite and least favorite contestants from the TV show.
  • Players must take care of their avatar’s modeling career, overseeing details ranging from workout routines to makeup and clothes, to get points
  • Players may receive complaints and even get fired by their virtual model.
  • You can send your avatar “on vacation” to a friend’s cell phone.
  • When sent, the friend will see the character knocking on the cell phone screen with a suitcase in hand. If they accept the avatar, they will take on the responsibility of taking take care of her for a set amount of time.
  • Artificial Life will develop several mobile games over a license period of two years.

I’ve got to say, something sounds just right about this whole concept for Asia. I’m keen to know how brands are going to get involved. Anybody heard more about it?

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it
    can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However just imagine if you added
    some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Fantastic blog!

    it will be a key focus area. The late summer

    I leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a site or
    if I have something to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s a result of the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And after this post Hong Kong companys avatar-based mobile Top Model game | the big switch. I was actually moved enough to leave a comment 😉 I do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks come across like coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list all of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!
