DoND not Live

I am a bit sad that Deal or No Deal Live is no longer with us, of course nothing stays live forever, but this one never really fulfilled its potential. It’s been taken down now, although I wouldn’t be surprised if the format itself is resurrected someday.

We’ve put an update live for our social multiplayer version of Deal or No Deal, it includes a number of new features that we’re hoping its small, but loyal, community of fans will enjoy. The most noticeable change is that we’ve added a feature allowing players to auto-join a match mid-way through (no more hanging […]

The Million Pound Drop – play along game

What a week this is turning out to be, each night I’ve been on set at our new live gameshow ‘The Million Pound Drop‘. Why? because this is the first live production Endemol and Channel 4 have done that offers a complete play along at home game experience to complement our TV show. (watch it […]
