Rhythm and ThirtyThree Rhythm and ThirtyThree

Special Guest Judge Malcolm Garrett said

"The Original Modern Award goes to Rhythm and ThirtyThree - DB-Play, A Different Dimensions game for Deutsche Bank. I’m really impressed with how this takes the original computer game ‘ping-pong’ and re-imagines it for a modern, mobile, multi-user world. I think Tony Wilson would like the noisily irreverent way it intrudes into the formal world of banking."

Entrant's description

"Rhythm were asked by ThirtyThree to use their unique PlayNow technology to create DB-Play, a multiplayer version of a classic arcade ping pong game for Deutsche Bank for use at graduate recruitment events globally. Students instantly join the game played on the event’s big screen by entering a URL in their phone’s browser. Players work together as teams of up to 100 whilst also competing individually to hit the ball more times than anyone else. The game has so far been used at 17 events and has harvested thousands of sets of contact details, with more events planned worldwide."
