OverDog to launch its beta app next month
OverDog, the mobile app that connects pro athletes with fans through any video game title, will launch its beta version next month before going public this Fall. During its Kickstarter campaign, OverDog signed on dozens of pro athletes to promote the campaign including social media activities.In the past month, OverDog recruited another 75 professional athletes to get in the game including NFL star Randy Moss, USMNT players, NBA stars and NCAA athletes. The NFLPA and NBPA each report that more than 75% of their members are avid gamers. The OverDog mobile app helps streamline the process to better connect fans with athletes in all of their favorite games.
“This experience has been incredible for us,” says Hunter Hillenmeyer, Former Chicago Bear and Founder of OverDog. “Once word got out about the OverDog app, athletes from all sports began reaching out to us to take part in this project. We’re very excited to get the beta version going soon, and to roll out all of our exciting features to make this an unforgettable gaming experience.”
How Does OverDog Work?
Athletes post video challenges which fans can access and accept. OverDog chooses one lucky gamer from a random drawing who will then face off against the challenging athlete. Athletes and fans can interact via the video game, and even trash talk while wearing headsets.
