Video Slivers

Sergio Goldenberg (Project Manager), Annie Lausier, Paul Amsbary

Slivers is a broadband game that tests users’ musical knowledge by asking them to match artists with their slivers (brief segments of music videos).

It displays dynamically-generated video content and prompts the user to select the corresponding artist from a list of five. A user may pick a difficulty level, which corresponds with the duration of video he or she will see. The game encourages replay by rewarding people who have familiarized themselves with video content.

Slivers was chosen as one of ten student projects to receive an mtvU Digital Incubator grant in 2006. The Digital Incubator Challenge funds broadband multimedia projects that demonstrate innovative ideas.
