Test out social games discovery service TeePee Games to win an iPad
Well, at least you'll have a chance at an Apple iPad. TeePee Games, the upcoming London, UK-based games discovery service is offering every beta applicant an entry to win a coveted iPad just for signing up. TeePee Games is looking for at least 20 thousand beta testers by the end of Feb. to try out the service, which hopes to revive the spirit of discovery Facebook once had for its games.
The service recommends social, casual and mobile games based off the games you're already playing. Think of it as Apple's Genius feature for iTunes, but for your social games. TeePee Games aims to become "the only destination for finding and playing a huge range of games across the most modern of gaming channels; social networks, smart phones and the web," according to the company. Tony Pearce, co-founder and CEO of TeePee Games, had this to say of the beta program:
With rumors abound that Facebook is looking to enhance the gaming experience on the platform, TeePee Games will likely have to fight with the very reason it started in the first place. Either way, we'll see soon enough whether this interest was in the TeePee Games service or the Apple iPad.It's highly encouraging to see so many people signing up, especially given that we only launched the registration at the beginning of February and have yet to kick-start our marketing campaign for the full launch in March. This confirms the market need for the unique service we've designed, but even so, the extraordinary level of interest we've generated has been a real surprise.
