Ever wanted to play professional athletes in a game of NCAA Football, Madden NFL, FIFA, or even Call of Duty? Former Vanderbilt Commodore and Chicago Bear Hunter Hillenmeyer is the co-founder of OverDog, a company that will allow gamers the opportunity to play their favorite games against professional athletes.
The company has already reached out and established relationships with the NHLPA, the MLBPA, and the MLSPA to groups like the UFC, the NCAA and Olympic athletes as well as console makers (Xbox, PlayStation), game publishers (EA, 2K, and Activision for starters), and potential broadcast partners (Twitch.tv, Machinima Sports, YouTube).
Today was the Kickstarter launch for OverDog as they look to reach $100,000 by March 29. Each pledge level provides different perks, including beta access beginning in April for those pledging $15 or more. The full service is expected to launch in August.
