Google is supposedly helping young tech entrepreneur, Michael Sayman assemble and unveil a social gaming start-up called Arcade.
Google confirmed Arcade’s existence to Bloomberg but provided no details other than the project being “focused on mobile gaming with friends.”
Bloomberg reports that the project won’t be tied to any existing social networks; instead, users will create accounts based off their phone number. The games might involve some trivia elements.
So while this sounds like an extremely nascent endeavor, it appears Google is taking cues from live trivia game HQ. Those live trivia sessions can reach millions of users and have created real-world social gatherings where colleagues, friends, and families get together for a game.
