About the Game
#ElectionDerby was designed and developed by our Game Development department 4DX Games. It utilises the Twitter API to measure sentiment and reports positive tweets via a JSON feed, the game then interprets this into horizontal movement. Think of it as a live interactive graph that visualises tweet data in a fun and sharable game.
