Wakie – a social alarm clock

lw —  December 14, 2014 — Leave a comment

Wakie is a fun, friendly community of people who wake each other up in the morning. Set a time and a stranger will call you. It’s anonymous and is another in a number apps that are attempting to connect strangers in unique ways. A few months ago Miranda July released her Somebody app that enables users to send messages through strangers in the real-world. Hybrid apps an emerging trend or niche? But then again Wakie could catch on and dare I say become a dating app.

Enjoyed this reality based project that documents 40 days of dating between two friends that have failed at love. Nice mix of design and storytelling. I particularly like the simplicity of how the story is presented side by side.

I first played this a few years back but have recently started playing it with my son. It’s an amazing game that is stunning in terms of its artfulness. It also evolves the point and click adventure while paying homage at the same time. Well worth the download.
