Go 8 Bit present WIFI WARS

Wi-Fi Wars is a live comedy game show where you play along! Log in with your smartphone or tablet (make sure you’ve got plenty of battery!) and compete in a range of games, quizzes and challenges to win the show, and prizes!

Hosted by comedian and regular videogames commentator Steve McNeil (Challenge TV’s Videogame Nation, Ginx TV’s Console Yourself and Ginx Live), the show was first performed as part of the Royal Institution’s 2015 Summer Programme after Steve and Rob Sedgebeer’s appearance on their 2014 BBC Christmas Lectures.

An early version of the technology used in the show was developed by Rob Sedgebeer and kindly loaned to the live incarnation of McNeil and Pamphilon’s videogaming/comedy show Go 8-Bit, which you may have spotted in things such as Time Out (Critic’s Choice), Metro (Top Ten London Geek Nights Out), The Guardian (“Not To Be Missed”) and on BBC Radio 4 Extra. They also had their own stage at Eurogamer’s EGX, welcoming over 80,000 people to the event over its four day run at Earls’ Court.
