Welcome UpStreet friends. We are super excited to partner with you to help play some games and tell students that Jesus is awesome!
The Big Pyramid is one of our favorite games shows. This app is a simple download to your Mac or PC. It usually works best playing back on the same computer you are running lyrics on. There is a simple "On/Off" button that will send it full screen to your computers 2nd display (or choose a display). Ok enough with the words, lets watch a video.
Here is a quick demo of how the game works.
Live demo and some behind the scenes clips...
This game has some really fun new features! Instead of just 1 screen "On/Off" button this game has 3. So you can put the Big Pyramid screen on a big screen and the 2 contestant screens on their own smaller monitor. OR put them all on the same screen and simply use the "On/Off" buttons to select which screen you want to see.
Import Questions: To speed up loading questions we have an "Import" button that will import a .csv file. A .csv (comma separated values) is a file exported from a spreadsheet. We have a google doc template that you can use to type in your questions/answers. Then export the .csv file from there. Then when you import that file, your entire game will be setup and ready to go. One file will store questions for up to 5 games (works with Excel, Google Docs, etc...).
LumaKey: We also set the backgrounds to the contestant screens to pure black. This allow you to use a video switcher to "key out" the backgrounds and put them live over a camera.
iPad as a 2nd Monitor: In the demo we used an iPad as a 2nd monitor. To do this we used an app called "Duet" it is a fun app that turns your iPad into a display. It connects via USBso it is pretty fast. It now works Mac or PC.
INTRO VIDEO: If you would like to use the Big Pyramid Intro video we made, you can download it HERE.
Thanks for being awesome!
