JCPenney Gamifies the Oscar-watching Experience

In its 14th consecutive year as retail sponsor for the Academy Awards, JCPenney is engaging Oscar fans through an interactive web and  mobile game created by TMA.  The   Oscars Play to Give experience ties in charitable giving with JCPenney’s new spring fashion and  various Oscar themes such as the red carpet, awards and  celebrity antics.

During the broadcast, users will be prompted to tap corresponding icons or “tiles” when they are shown on screen.  Every tap adds points to one of three charities chosen by the user:  No Kid Hungry, Do Something, and  Boys & Girls Clubs of America.  The leaderboard feature tracks point accumulation and  the charity with the most points receives the biggest donation.

JCPenney’s Oscars Play to Give web and  mobile game launches on February, 22 at 4pm PST.
