Pikit, though currently a game, is being built into a gamified photo sharing platform that enables users to create collages of four photos, called Pikits; These Pikits are used to describe a word that the user decides. Users can share these Pikits with friends, and follow friends, celebrities, and expert Pikit users to get updates when Pikits are posted. Followers use these Pikits to guess the word they are meant to describe by unscrambling letters. A correct guess results in a √ which acts as a “like”. Some classic game mechanics are included which create instant monetization and aid users in guessing Pikits. These Pikits get categorized based on the word they are associated with to act as a built in hashtag. This allows for simple display of trending topics. In addition to posting Pikits publicly, users can send private Pikits directly to other users to engage in a private, back and forth game. We expect to continue to grow the game and gradually introduce platform features. Read more
