Wheel of Fortune Online

Wheel of Fortune Online was a multiplayer version of the broadcast game show, which was produced alongside Jeopardy! Online to become one of the most popular casual games on the web.

As R/GA Interactive┬┤s creative director and producer on the project, I worked with designer Vincent LaCava and the project team from Sony Online to create a fresh, retro look and feel for the classic gameshow. Quirky player characters with “avatude” and a dynamic Java-based interface brought the game to life.

Wheel of Fortune Online was awarded a Silver New Media Invision Award, design distinction in ID Magazine Interactive Design Review of 1999, and and WebAwards Outstanding Website of 1999 by the Web Marketing Association.
