Hundreds of interns arrived at Microsoft in Bellevue and Redmond expecting a some professional and technical growth, but none of them expected that part of the job requirement was going to be saving Bellevue from a horrendous epidemic.
The interns rose to the occasion and were able to save 2,172,400 lives!!!
As part of their orientation for the Summer program, hundreds of groups of Microsoft Interns joined up in a team building game in downtown Bellevue. Using a map of “outbreaks” from MetroDemic’s incompetent team of scientists, the teams hustled around the city looking for hidden locations and and answering pub-style trivia to save lives from the epidemic.
Kim Nguyen, Program Manager at Microsoft and the lead for this program, shared this feedback:
“We were looking for an epic team building experience for our 1000+ person intern class this summer. At first, we were considering utilizing one of the numerous puzzle/escape style rooms in the area but logistics proved to be quite complicated for such a large group and costs ended up being too high. MetroDemic to the rescue!!! The KurioCity Games team set us up with a custom leader board and custom questions. They also made logistics SO EASY with auto generated game links. Coordinating multiple events over the course of 8 weeks for 1000 people should have been a very stressful endeavor, instead- KurioCity games made this a breeze AND our interns had a GREAT TIME! Can’t wait to try out their Seattle course next summer!”
MetroDemic was launched as a team building game in 2016 and has expanded to 10 different cities across Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, and Texas.
