Live Games, a new format in gaming-based entertainment, use the quick hit appeal of casual gaming to involve players in an action-driven scripted adventure. Over the course of a defined period of time of 14 days, players equipped with cell phones, email address and the Web must solve a series of short, game-based tasks and challenges within a scripted plot that has the twists and turns of an action film.
"We are excited to introduce the format of Live Games through our launch of The Prague Files," said Troy Benton, founder of Live Games Network. "With the goal of giving people another way to experience and enjoy a developing story line, we have created an original series of game-based tasks and challenges to involve players in the plot. Live Games let people participate in the thrill of the game while engaging with other players to build alliances, solve clues and potentially win an exciting prize, whether they have 5 or 55 minutes to spare each day."
