Name That Movie app created by Redwind debuts on App Store

21 Feb 2012

Name That Movie a new game developed by Dublin app creators Redwind for the owners of the Name That Tune franchise Prestige Entertainment, has gone live on the iOS App Store.

Demoed last week at the Games Ireland Gathering (GIG 2012), Name That Movie is a quiz-based title that takes users through five different rounds, testing their knowledge of movies in all genres as well as seven mini-games.

Name That Movie features an enormous amount of content, including thousands of clips, stills, posters, hangman, clues and trivia questions.

“I think we have about 300 clips on there and more than 400 stills,” explained Redwind’s Conor Winders.

“We will also be working with Prestige on an even bigger launch project later this year that may tie into a big TV show. Not bad for a few boys from Glasnevin,” Winders said.

The game went live overnight on the iOS App Store and is available for 99 cents.

“Working on Name That Movie with Redwind Software has been a blast” said Noah Rubenstein, COO, Prestige Entertainment Group LLC.

“As the owners of Name That Tune, we wanted to bring something to consumers that they would enjoy playing with a bit a familiarity of the iconic brand. With the proliferation of movies nowadays, I think users will appreciate the exciting gameplay and features that only we are able to provide them,” Rubenstein said.

Among the unique characteristics of the game is its anti-repetition system. It means that players will never run into any overlap in the questions and will never feel bored when playing the game.

There are also leaderboards to keep track of the scores and compete with friends. To boast of their achievements, users can share their high scores via Facebook, Twitter, via email or SMS.

Redwind has developed a track record for developing trivia games and this has allowed it to spawn successful franchises that ultimately landed major deals, such as the right to bring out the Official Broadway Challenge and Official Elvis Challenge games.
