Morbify: a murder mystery Hackathon

*register via the eventbrite page:*

Mobify invites you to our headquarters for a day of gamification, meeting new people and solving a murder.


You've just been hired by trendy video game company, Shankworks Inc. Congratulations! On the back of their wildly sucessful first game - StabCat - Shankworks Inc has been on a hiring spree. You are one of 30 new employees starting at Shankworks HQ on the same day!

Eager to eclipse the success of StabCat with an even better product, all new employees have been issued a challenge - create Shankworks Inc's next big viral hit by creatively gamifying some everyday tasks. You'll work in teams, and the team with the best product by the end of the day will be showered with glory. What a great opportunity!
But things at Shankworks Inc are not what they seem. Another company, Doodle, is making overtures to aquire the company at an incredibly high valuation. The team is strongly divided over the decision. Who stands to win? Who stands to lose? Who has the motive... for murder!


The goal for teams is to identify tasks that people do every day and find ways to make them more fun. Does your daily commute bore you? Are you annoyed by the processes of dental hygiene? Do you wish you had more incentive to recycle? Hack them! Hack them all!


You’ll have an all access pass to:

- Mobify's device testing lab.
- Private demo rooms.
- A suite of team communication tools.
- All the whiteboards, pens and paper you could ever need to rapidly validate an awesome idea.
- Murder mystery clues. On the hour, every hour.
- Incredibly awesome awards for your hacking and murder solving talents.

Mobify will also be providing teams with breakfast, lunch and drinks throughout the day! Woo!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
