University of Kent,
WiFi Wars is a live comedy game show where you play along! Login with your smartphone or tablet (make sure you’ve got plenty of battery!) and compete in a range of games, quizzes and challenges to win the show, and prizes!
Hosted by comedian and regular videogames commentator Steve McNeil (Challenge TV’s “Videogame Nation”, Ginx TV’s “Console Yourself”, “Minecraft: Digging Deeper” and star of “Go 8-Bit”, hosted by Dara O’Briain, starting on Dave this autumn), the show was first performed as part of the Royal Institution’s 2015 Summer Programme after Steve and Rob Sedgebeer’s appearance on their 2014 BBC Christmas Lectures.
You may have spotted them in Time Out (Critic’s Choice), Metro (Top Ten London Geek Nights Out), The Guardian (“Not To Be Missed”) and on BBC Radio 4 Extra. They also had their own stage at Eurogamer’s EGX, welcoming over 80,000 people to the event over its four day run at Earls’ Court.
The technology used in the show was originally created by the boys for the live incarnation of Go 8-Bit, and will feature in the new TV adaptation of the show.
"I have never heard the Royal Institution audience cheer as loudly, or laugh as hard, as they did for WiFi Wars"
