Jeopardy! Online

Jeopardy! Online was a multiplayer version of the classic game show that, at its launch in 1998, became, along with Wheel of Fortune Online, 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 re-think the the look and feel of the show for a younger, hipper, online audience. A fresh color palette, wacky player characters with “avatude” and a dynamic Java-based interface were all part of the appeal.

Jeopardy! Online was awarded a Silver New Media Invision Award, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Best Family/Board Game of 1999 and WebAwards Outstanding Website of 1999 by the Web Marketing Association.
