Mightyverse’s Language Card Game “¡Dígame!” Gets an "ándale" From Indiegogo

By: Mightyverse, Inc.
SAUSALITO, Calif. - June 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Language platform startup Mightyverse announced today that it had successfully raised its crowdfunding goal in an Indiegogo campaign to begin selling card games that help people learn Spanish.

The card game, “¡Dígame!,” helps English-speakers learn Spanish in a fun way. During the game, the players help each other speak Spanish, using only Spanish phrases and non-language sounds or gestures, except during game setup and intermissions. Additional versions for learning Mandarin, Japanese, and English are already in development.

“As we have been building Mightyverse, we discovered an extremely efficient way to learn to speak a language.” said Sarah Allen, CTO of Mightyverse. “Instead of boring drills and forced conversations, we've created a game that incorporates best practices from our language learning research.”

Supporters of the Indiegogo campaign can vote to prioritize or wholly fund the next language, choosing from any of the 30 Mightyverse languages or any other language if they want to help translate.  Through this innovative funding and customer collaboration technique, Japanese has been selected for the next release of the game.

“We’ve designed a crowdfunding campaign as a way to reach language learners,” said CEO Glen Janssens, “Indiegogo’s international reach will allow us to connect with people learning different languages in many countries.”

After the release of the card game, Mightyverse plans to integrate its crowdsourced video phrases to make the game playable with a mobile app when there is no fluent speaker present.
