For fans hungry for the premiere of Skyfall, Sony has a new online game to whet their appetites. The premise is simple—MI6 is looking for a few good recruits. And it’s called the British Intelligence Officers Exam.
In a text-based online simulator, the game pairs fans with MI6 agents working in the field. Then it tests their mettle in life-and-death scenarios requiring cunning, coldness and a suite of Sony devices all designed to work together. Players are evaluated on their ability to solve complex problems under duress. Anyone can play. Devious solutions and Easter eggs have fans coming back for more.
Through this game experience, players can recognise the value of the connectivity between Sony’s products and services. Do you think you have what it takes to be an MI6 agent?
The game was available online from October to December 2012, and was spearheaded by Sony and W+K Portland, in collaboration with game production company Hide&Seek and development partner Existor. Get in touch at email@example.com to request a login to the archive.
