Built on LViS APIs, ‘Sochi Legends’ is playable on Viasat’s mobile site and also in their Sochi app. The game challenges you to prove your knowledge of winter Olympic sports by answering a range of daily quiz questions in a bid to earn yourself a gold medal in each of the fifteen disciplines. During live Ice Hockey matches, you can give your points tally a serious boost by making correct predictions about the action. Over the course of the Olympics, you’ll climb the ranks from lowly ”Trainee” to certified ”Sochi Legend”.
The game features a leaderboard that lets you see how you measure up against your friends and other players in the game. If you’re good enough to reach Level 10 and secure ‘Sochi Legend’ status, you’re invited to join the Hall of Fame where you can comment on (brag about!) your success.
Tom McDonnell, Monterosa’s CEO said “The days of investing in one-off experiences for TV are over, so by adopting LViS and making a highly flexible sports gaming app, MTGx are enhancing the fan experience today and investing in a capability that can be used again and again”
Fergal Walker, from MTG added: "Modern audiences expect to be able to engage more with the content they love, and MTG aims to help them. Sochi Legends enables sports fans of all ages to get a little closer to the 2014 Winter Olympics by taking part in daily quizzes and predictions. Leveraging Monterosa's LViS platform enabled us to develop this solution speedily and gives us the ability to repeat this and build on it for future audience engagement."
