Topical Gaming

Games targeted toward adults take on topical, of-the-moment themes

Implications - Increasing engagement and capitalizing off of buzz, games focused around pop culture phenomena like politics or Internet memes are taking off. By playing into topics that consumers are already interested in and talking about, game creators are not only able to increase sales, but generate word-of-mouth around the products themselves as well. This shift toward a more niche version of existing products is reflective of a consumer base that seeks out goods that reflect their specific interests.
Workshop Question - If you were to leverage a pop culture phenomenon to connect with consumers, which one would you choose and how would you leverage it?
