Twittering the Human Resistance for Terminator: Salvation – Twitter-based Advergame
Earlier this month we reported on Eminem’s twitter-based treasure hunt. Sony, in promoting the new Terminator film, has created a game built on the twitter platform. To play you must register at www.resistance2018.com and follow tweets from @resistance2018. Game play follows in a similar manner to @playtwivia in which you @reply solutions to simple puzzles—word scrabbles, fill in the blanks and trivia. As the game is billed as a means for humans to communicate with each other in the “resistance” participants also get to receive “skynet warnings” about ongoing events in the terminator world and, of course, updates about the movie.
