Captain Blimey founders are Srikant Vemparala, Mike Snow and Pradeep Kanneganti. Captain Blimey's founders were inspired by the vigor and longevity of this real-world treasure hunt to develop a digital treasure hunt. "Captain Blimey motivates players to move and be active through its competitive game rewards such as cash prizes or gift cards," said Vemparala. Kevin Harrington, an original 'shark' on the ABC Emmy-winning TV show, "Shark Tank," the inventor of the infomercial and pioneer of the "As Seen on TV" industry, is aligning his brand with Captain Blimey. Captain Blimey is an early adopter of AR as an integral component of the mobile game play experience. Not long ago AR felt like very futuristic technology, but most consumers today are comfortable with the applications.
"A successful entrepreneur over the last 40 years, I am keen to identify and capitalize on the trends illuminating mobile gaming's role in technology and social engagement online," said Harrington. "I expect the game's inclusive platform and AR will make Captain Blimey incredibly popular."
During testing, Captain Blimey received fantastic reviews from early adopters. Players enjoyed that the game merges the physical and digital worlds to inspire them to explore their communities on foot. Some commented that the GPS-enabled maps and augment reality reminded them of Pokémon Go with exciting additions such as the first person to open a chest collects its contents, making it unavailable to subsequent players. Other beta testers loved the game's reward experience where they can win real life prizes and cash by playing the game.
"Our design and development team invested thousands of hours in the creative process. The passion infused in the game is evident from the imaginative user experience to fine-tuned game play," adds Vemparala.
