The Facebook Game
Setting The Trend
Here is where I made my mark. Pass A Joint was the first viral marijuana game that I have ever seen. I programed and set it up on Facebook in late 2009. The response was enormous. At it’s peak Pass A Joint was seeing 1,000,000 “hits” a day. The ride was not an easy one, and for an independent developer navigating the corporates, it was no picnic.
First they acknowledge Pass A Joint’s existence by suspending the game. It seemed that rolling a virtual joint was just too much for the internet to handle at that time. When the censors got to the game, it had developed over 1,000 users in just a few short days. There was an uproar and a Facebook page created, “Bring Back Pass a Joint”. The corporates must have thought about the traffic/money factor, and came to their senses. I was “allowed” to set up Pass A Joint again, and the floodgates opened.
I keep the game up and running because people still use it – not many though. It has seen it’s glory days. Find the game here -=> https://apps.facebook.com/passjoints find the application page here -=> https://facebook.com/passajoint
