Product Innovation Ltd, a UK Company specializing in electronic sensor design, has added an innovative game to their Propane GasGenie website.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the game and it is really quite addictive. - S. Georgeson.

The Propane GasGenie is claimed to be the only propane gauge that actively warns the BBQ user in time to finish grilling. It has been selling exclusively on Amazon and sales have been increasing as awareness of the product grows. With any new product, sales are limited to people who know it exists and what its advantages are. So the Company looked for ways that would both increase traffic to their website and at the same time amuse and entertain the visitors.

Peter Frank, CEO of the Company says, "We specialize in inventing intelligent electronic sensors. For example, there is the HotSpotter for Fire Fighters and the Optical Level Sensor for supermarket refrigeration systems. We never imagined that when we launched the Propane GasGenie, we would also end up inventing a computer game! It has been great fun and a whole new learning curve for us. The amount of work and skill involved in getting the game to work on the web was an eye opener for us. Duncan Wood, the game developer, has shown enormous patience as well as skill and our thanks go to him for his huge efforts."

The new game is called ‘Hamburger Frisbee.’ The aim of the game is to score points by throwing hamburgers, Frisbee style, onto a grill on the opposite side of the screen. Every time the player succeeds he or she wins points. But of course there is a catch. The player has to remember to switch off before the gas runs out. Otherwise the points get lost. The game includes two early warning systems: The Propane GasGenie and a standard Pressure Gauge. As in real life, the Propane GasGenie gives ample warning, with flashing LEDs and an audio alarm, and the Pressure Gauge gives a very short warning if the player happens to notice it in time.

Players will have the opportunity to share their score on Facebook and also to enter a monthly draw to win a Propane GasGenie propane monitor. The game and the free draw can both be found on the ‘Fun and Games’ tab of the website.

Peter Frank again: "We have worked with the games designers to make the game entertaining and to keep it amusing. Beta tests by a few selected people of all ages seem to suggest that playing is enjoyable and a little addictive. Watch out for some little features that should bring a laugh when playing. Even the music is carefully chosen. If people recognize it and remember the title we hope they will smile at the intended joke."
