On a Serious Note
The Real Story
Christian & Derek are both college drop outs. Being talented, smart, and creative just was not enough. They were both encouraged as teenagers that college was their only means of entering adulthood. They struggled with school and eventually realized that college was just not for them (at the time) for many reasons. However doors to enter the real world were closed to college drop-outs. Their options were limited. They struggled to find a career path. They felt that they were unable to succeed in the world. They were losing hope, passion and squandering their talents.
They did not fit the standard educational path and the career world was not willing to let them in. Do we just turn our backs on them?
Nick and Enrich Marketing saw potential in both of them. So, two mentoring internship positions were created. Derek was hired as a Marketing Intern and Christian was hired as an Application Development Intern. They started their training in April 2013.
Every Enrich Internship season has an Intern Project.
After several weeks of training, it was time to start the Project. So Derek, Christian and Nick started to brainstorm project ideas. In just 20 minutes Prove Me Wrong was born.
For the next month we brainstormed, white-boarded, planned and set forth to build a Friendly, Engaging and In-Your-Face Challenge Game.
The Real Game
We have built an interactive friend to friend game we want to get in the hands of our friends, like you. This game is about adolescent and adult psychological play that enhances friendships, trust and fun. Our challenges can be embarrassing, gross and even ridiculous but they are not offensive.
The system enhances play to encourage interactivity, deeper connections, and fun memorable experiences with your friends. The game has a lot of surprises and challenges that will stretch the elasticity of friendships and build stronger bonds. The game is all around fun, appeals to your ego and helps players reconnect.
We want to provide more details about the game but we have to protect the Intellectual Property of the team before it is released.
FYI if you are interested in being the first to get your hands on the game sign up on Indiegogo.com to be a Beta Tester or Sneak Peak Player.
The Real Plan
The game is nearing the end of development. Portions of the game are in testing while cross platform integration is just starting. We want to make the game accessible by all online means. By phone, tablet, computer, social networks, SMS Text and any future means.

Together we can succeed
Christian and Derek were both out of work and without hope of a career. They were struggling to visualize a bright future. Enrich Marketing has given them an opportunity to learn valuable talents, inspire them to dream again and help them join the workforce. In the process the game was born.
Nick, Nathan, Christian and Derek need your support to make the game a reality. We need support from our friends, family, fans and spectators.
