We Are Jake (2018)
A mixed up Mixer original sports brawler (and sometimes dance fighter)!
Release: July, 2018
Role: Development Director
Platforms: Mixer (XBOX, PC, Mobile)
In the spring of 2018 we approached Microsoft with a fun prototype to demonstrate the promise of live interactive streams for their streaming platform Mixer. The folks at Mixer invited us to conceive and develop four original games for their platform.
We Are Jake is equal parts mayhem and spectacular dunks with a healthy dash of derp. Join a team, score a goal with over two dozen unique balls, and have crazy fun with your friends! Designed from the ground up for Mixer, Microsoft’s new live streaming platform, We Are Jake supports up to 40 simultaneous players with a variety of awesome play modes.
In less than 3 months, we earned over 6 million views to advance to the #8 most watched channel on the platform!
What makes We Are Jake super special is that its being developed inclusively with the Mixer community! Several times each week, crew members from very very spaceship beam in to live host matches, moderate design discussions and take feature requests and suggestions. The game evolves and changes daily based on feedback and ideas from the Mixer Community!
