EU Parliament Croatia: Facebook Quiz 
Design & development
 
 
 
 
European Parliamet, in Croatia, wanted to raise awareness among young people about the work they do, and also wanted them to learn more about their representatives. They decided to address young people through social media, specifically Facebook. So, we decided to make them a Facebook app, in form of a quiz.
 
For every representative, three statements were offered, but only one was true. The goal of this quiz was to get all 12 statements correctly, as quickly as possible. The quickest players are allowed to participate in the next round, and they compete for an alluring prize - a trip to Europarliament, in Bruxselles.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Result is shown through the sillhouetes and portraits of Croatian European Parliament Candidates.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Two main principles are integrated into app development process
 
- maximum availability and game load response time
- covering users (from devices point of view) in as-wide-as-possible manner
 
Microsoft Windows Azure was chosen as a hosting platform, as we gained minimum loading times (Azure uses geo-dispersed cloud servers) and scalability that supports thousand of users without extra server cost.. Stavros, our Greek intern, wrote about integrating Facebook SDK with Windows Azure so if you need more information on this topic... hop to his long-read article... http://www.neuralab.net/news/facebook-games-development-using-windows-azure-cloud-hosting/
 
Also, we choose to develop this game on “Open” web technologies … HTML5, CSS3, Javascript (Kinetic.JS engine) and with that  we are covering all iOs users + it gives us a chance to easily port the application to some other platforms.
