PX57, Crowdsourced Video Game from Logitech, Now Available
Game Designed Entirely by Fans, Created by Experts from NYU Game Lab and Tiny Mantis
NEWARK, Calif. — April 9, 2015 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the availability of PX57, the first-ever crowdsourced video game from a consumer brand, and the final product of Logitech’s “Together We Game” project. Designed and developed for game-players of all levels, PX57 is a traditional tower defense video game designed with the direction of more than 12,000 votes worldwide and brought to life by the director of the New York University Game Lab, Frank Lantz, and a team of gaming experts from Tiny Mantis.
“Logitech made it possible for thousands of people from countries all over the world to come together and contribute to the creation of PX57, and get an inside peek at what goes into the game design and development process,” said Frank Lantz, director of the New York University Game Center. “PX57 reflects the ideas and creative choices of everyone who was involved and we’re excited to see it come to life. Together We Game was a fun and collaborative process and now it’s time for players to dig into the final result.”
Logitech developed the project as a way for fans to share their creativity and contribute to the design of a game. The company brought together a community of people on reddit for five months to nominate and vote on crucial game elements, such as the setting, main characters, point system and weaponry.
Voters from around the world participated in shaping the game’s direction. The end result is a playable tower defense-type game directed completely by Logitech fans and available starting today.
