Winner’s Introduction by Resonant Games: Video chat with educational games and activities

600_415697672Resonant Games is a studio that specializes in social apps with synchronous interactivity. Our team has been working together for the past 15 years developing Social Games, Virtual Worlds and F2P Mobile Games.

As parents with distant relatives we recognized the need for an accessible video chat application for distributed families. With we set out to create a video chat platform that would allow participants to join in a shared space with one click (no download or plugin required). Once connected, family members can synchronously share content like toys, books and educational games to add context to the conversation. Eventually, family members will be able to upload photos, create drawings together and record their session for sharing externally.

Our demo at is a prototype of what will ultimately evolve into a HUB for the distributed family. We are excited about the enthusiasm for our video chat platform because we know that it solves a real problem and we are anxious to take it to the next level.
