Of course we all like to write about the most recent next-gen game, the coolest app and the hottest gadget, but this time we’re offering you the opportunity to present something entirely new to your readership: SNIPE! SNIPE is a truly unique combination of real-time live shooting (with actual ammo consisting of soft, app-integrated darts) and a game run on tablets or touch screens. Yes, with SNIPE you CAN actually… BLAST YOUR TABLET!
WHAT YOU CAN GET FROM US
Obviously the Kickstarter campaign will run for a few weeks, so we won’t be able to supply you review copies until after the campaign is finished, BUT we can already offer you plenty of stuff! Here are a few ideas.
ORGANISE A COMPETITION amongst your readership or WRITE AN ARTICLE ABOUT SNIPE and get SNIPE stickers, a framed and signed tablet shot to pieces on a shooting range while filming the video clip (limited supply only), SNIPER kits after the funding is complete, your winner’s name in the credits of one of our SNIPE apps and more! For extensive coverage in major media, we’ll make sure your winner can travel to our exclusive SNIPE BOOT CAMP! We’ll try not to get him shot, by the way.
STUFF YOU CAN USE
You’d like to write an article? You will need… stuff! XnTouch and Badass PR always aim to please, so… what about exclusive (there’s that word again!) Skype interviews, ready-to-go video interviews, clips, pictures and a behind the scenes look at the apps we’re working on right now? Pick our brains (figuratively speaking), get in touch, talk to us and find out more (yes, we just love those exclamation marks)!
Most importantly, don’t forget to check out our Kickstarter preview page — our cool video clip is on there too!
We are SNIPErs
Too lazy to read everything about SNIPE on www.SNIPEdarts.com or on our Kickstarter page? Too many press releases this week? No problem, here’s some of the most important information.
We Are Innovators
Mobile shooting games just got real. With SNIPE’s patent-pending Touch Darts and designated multiplatform game apps, you can turn your tablet into a limitless shooting playground, where your blasting skills truly count. SNIPE offers both the tactility of physical shooting games and the endless possibilities only computer and console games have to offer, making for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind experience.
We Are Shooters
From kids to adults, we all love to play shooting games, whether we are using a toy gun to blast our (mostly) innocent friends or playing within the exciting digital war zone generated by the latest console game. For the first time ever, it is possible to combine both kinds of games!
We Use All Dimensions
Mobile touch devices have changed the game. Suddenly, we’re being inundated with one-dimensional game apps that only require one functional finger and an admittedly long, but ultimately boring series of quick swipes to become a pro. Somewhere along the way, we lost the passion for competitive gaming, and failed to create the excitement of challenging our skills to achieve greatness… until now!
We’re Bringing Back the Action to Shooting Games
Imagine a diverse shooting zone that can be generated by the press of button and a boundless playground, without the limits inherent in digital graphics or sounds – IMAGINE SNIPE!
We’re Blending Physical Elements with a Digital Playground
SNIPE is all about the perfect blending of digital and physical elements within one revolutionary shooter game. The idea is simple: you use one of our SNIPE Blasters or another commercially available foam dart blaster to shoot SNIPE Darts at your tablet or touchscreen while it’s running one of our SNIPE apps (don’t worry, your tablet is safe (read more – link to safety)). Thanks to your tablet’s sensors, the physical impact gets translated to exploding targets, accuracy ratings, game scores and more!
We’re Using Actual Toy Darts as Ammo
SNIPE Darts integrate our patent-pending technology with unique materials to create a soft, electro-conductive toy projectile that mimics the tap of a finger on a touchscreen device, allowing the device to register the dart’s impact on the screen. They are compatible with most front-loading foam dart blasters, such as NERF™ and X-SHOT™, but we also offer our own ultra-cool SNIPE Blasters, along with a designated Docking Station to safely store your smart device.
We’ve Made SNIPE Cross-Platform
Best of all, we’ll be providing a multitude of free SNIPE apps for iOs and Android, all of which are uniquely tailored for SNIPE Darts! From the get-go, you’ll be able to shoot at a pyramid of cans, shatter moving bottles, challenge your friends in a duel or simply practice your sniping skills. Stretch goals include many more games, so start writing!
A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT SNIPE
· SNIPE is an actual dart. It’s real. No bluetooth. No infrared. No WiFi. By the way: WiFi may be bad for you. Our darts arent because…
· SNIPE Touch Darts are safer than a human finger. Really. We shot them at an egg and it didn’t crack. Need to be convinced? Check it out here: https://d2pq0u4uni88oo.cloudfront.net/assets/002/102/035/8255a3836c547b6dded24228938fdc6a_h264_high.mp4
· SNIPE Touch Darts are compatible with most front-loading dart guns on the market, like Nerf. You know you have one lying around somewhere. Just admit it.
· SNIPE apps are available on iOS and Android alike and our darts work on all touchscreen devices.
· SNIPE invites freelance developers and companies to come up with apps of their own for our SNIPE Touch Darts. We well welcome everyone with original ideas with open arms. The sky is the limit! Unless you develop an app astronauts can use. That would mean space is the limit. Sort of.
· SNIPE is already thinking about the future. Apart from man-eating robots, that means multiplayer dart competitions, dedicated touch TVs, touch walls, blasters with bluetooth, using smartphone-tablet combos in the same game and even connecting tablets together in order to reach a level of play other games can only dream of.
