To those new to this newsletter, welcome 👋🏼. We reach out periodically to keep you updated on our progress. The Luna Park family is growing whether it’s our team members, hosts, or players. However, our mission is unchanged: We’re creating an all-in-one tool where hosts can produce a branded, interactive game show allowing users to 📺watch and 🎮play from self-formed parties 👯♂️👯♀️.
The team has grown to 8 as we recently added two more engineers (one from a notable music product and the other from the world of live streaming)
We survey players after the game and recently we’ve been seeing ~80%+ of players say Luna Park is a better solution for trivia than the alternatives
Private chat is launched (more on that below) and we are in the early days of testing our “on stage” feature, which allows the host to bring up to 4 players on stage for everyone in attendance to see / hear
Since the last newsletter we ran over 30 events on Luna Park with a lot of happy hosts and players
We are still in “closed beta” so the process to onboard hosts is still slower and more intensive than we’d like but it sets our hosts up for success
We know we need to do a better job of facilitating the solo player experience but we have some exciting developments in the pipeline there
🆕 Product Updates
Recently I’ve been talking to you a lot about stabilization and optimization. We made huge strides there over the last couple of months so our focus has turned back to new feature development. Last week we launched “private chat,” which was one of the most requested features from hosts and players alike. The new implementation allows for:
All Event Communication → Send a message to everyone in the event
Team Chat → Send a message to everyone on your team
Private Chat → Send a private message to one other person in the event, such as the host
This will help streamline communication and make things more seamless for everyone in attendance. It’s been in place over the last week and we are seeing positive feedback already.
