The game is monetized by selling in-game virtual items and hosting sponsored caption contests by advertisers. Winners of sponsored caption contests receive material prizes from the advertiser for their participation.
Kaption King capitalizes on the rapidly growing popularity of internet memes. A meme is a cultural phenomenon that usually proliferates virally in the form of funny pictures and videos. Memes are especially prevalent on social networks and they provide a comedic slant on recent events such as Mitt Romney’s ill-famed comment about receiving “a binder full of women.” People commonly share memes created by others but they rarely go through the trouble of creating one of their own. Even if someone creates a meme and it goes viral, the creator seldom receives credit for his or her accomplishment.
Kaption King seeks to provide meme creators with credit where credit is due and to “gamify” the meme creation experience. Players are recognized for uploading funny content and writing witty captions. They are rewarded for their creativity with votes and virtual trophies that afford bragging rights. This provides them the incentive to create their own memes instead of just sharing those started by others. It also gives them the ability to create memes based on personal events and share them privately with an in-the-know circle of friends. It’s like an inside joke from real life brought to the internet. For the first time ever, everyone can join in on the fun and compete to caption pictures!
“Kaption King is the next step in the evolution of memes and it’s a great way for people to express themselves. We are excited to see where our community takes us.” – Harsh Jiandani, Co-Founder
