Two Bit Circus has launched a live, online game show called Remote in order to bring friends, families and colleagues back together amid COVID-19.

Two Bit Circus, a community of entertainment and engineering enthusiasts, has been forced to keep its Micro-Amusement Park closed in downtown Los Angeles.

In response to this, the company has launched a live, play-from-home, interactive gameshow full of customisable games, which airs every Thursday.

Two Bit Circus developed Remote during quarantine, in a bid to reconnect players through friendly competition, comedy and world-class entertainment.

“It’s not just you, people in all lines of work are feeling burnt out on video calls and the monotony of staying home,” said Brent Bushnell, CEO of Two Bit Circus.

“While we can’t yet bring people back together in-person, we wanted to provide another way for groups to have fun and connect over live, interactive entertainment.”

Remote experiences include a mashup of classic TV game shows, and each show is hosted over live video by a Two Bit Circus host and their robot sidekick, GameShowBot3000.

Participants play in their web browsers from the comfort of their own homes, competing in challenges, answering trivia questions, and communicating via text chat.

“Although Zoom Happy Hours can be fun, sometimes people just want to be entertained,” said Eric Gradman, CTO of Two Bit Circus.

“Game shows hosted by real performers do that perfectly, and now your team can be the private studio audience. It’s a lot better than the never-ending season of Hollywood Squares we’re all starring in.”

Remote features built-in live chat, real-time scoring and leaderboard features, and is ideal for team building and celebrating corporate milestones.

Two Bit Circus’ pivot to a digital experience is an example of location-based entertainment (LBE) companies successfully adopting a digital strategy.

The latest offering from Two Bit Circus was used to celebrate the blooloop V-Expo, hosting players from across 15 different countries.
