AUSTIN, Texas, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Flying Manta, Inc. announced the launch of Double Dog today, an app that delivers an exhilarating and safe way for friends to send and receive dares, share their experiences, and make money. Think Nerve the movie, but without the danger or creepy manipulation. Double Dog is more than an app. It is a real life action game that offers a new form of social interaction, inspiring people to get off the couch and jump headfirst into adventures in the real world.
Users can send or receive dares while playing for money or points. If you send a dare, you receive video proof and have to approve it for payment. If you open a dare and decide not to do it, you can double dog dare the sender back for twice the value. If the person who originally sent the dare wants to chicken out, they have to pay three times the value. This ‘total equilibrium’ dare system ensures a safe and positive environment.
“Our goal is not only to build a community of watchers and players, but also to enable people to discover their creativity while making real money at the same time,” said CEO Rodrigo Carvalho. “Double Dog is reinventing how people interact, and we can’t wait to see what else our players come up with.”
For example, one Double Dog player recently won $2,000 after he got double dog dared to get a tattoo on his torso. The app was a wild success during beta testing and won the Audience Choice Award in Austin’s TechCrunch Pitch-Off. Users enjoy the app because it helps them create exciting new experiences for their friends and family, and complete dares for fame and money that span the spectrum from extremely silly to super disgusting.
In addition to cash, players can earn fame by sharing their best videos to the feed. The better the videos, the more followers, likes, and fans they earn. Double Dog also holds weekly tournaments where players compete to win prizes and get noticed. Recent tournament challenges included “Be a unicorn” and “Slap someone with a piece of cheese.” Let’s just say, the results were hilarious.
“Double Dog is such a blast for me,” said Double Dog player Benjamama. “It’s not a video game you sit and play or a social media app you log onto every once in awhile. It’s something in between. It’s an amazing app, and we need to make it famous. I believe it could be the next big app!”
By connecting people over a shared love of doing daring, wacky, fun stuff, Double Dog cultivates a welcoming community where people bond with friends and form new relationships. The founders also interact with users and act as community moderators.
The app is working with various brands so that users can make some fast cash. From dares to recreate a famous commercial to coming up with a new tagline, Double Dog users have found a novel way to be compensated for repping their favorite brands.
