Shark Tank Overplay Update from Season 15 

Overplay is an app where you can turn videos into games. You don’t need to know how to code or pay anything. 

What’s great about Overplay is that it wants everyone to be able to make games, not just experts. It mixes social media fun with exciting games. Also, you can create games using it. The games weren’t big, online games but short ones, less than a minute long. 

Overplay has special tech and an easy-to-use setup. Big investors like Village Global and Sound Media Ventures believe in it, making it stand out in the market. What’s neat is that you can turn videos about anything – like biking, makeup, or memes – into interactive games. You can even make games out of ads or movie trailers. Overplay’s AI technology is patented, making it unique.

In the 18th episode of Shark Tank Season 15, entrepreneurs Dan Projansky and Caroline Strzalka showcased their new app. They were seeking 500,000 for 2.5% equity, valuing the company at $20 million. They wanted to get a great deal from one of the Sharks.

Jason Blum, a guest on the show, warned that the product needs to have impressive sales since its valuation was $20 million. Caroline mentioned they’ve already softly launched products on both iOS and Android platforms.

Before entering the show, they already had more than 1 million people playing their games and over $150,000 in downloads. They were not planning to make money from sales until next year. However, they’ve already raised $3.7 million and given away about 20% of the company.

During filming, they had approximately $750,000 left in their bank account. Dan explained that Overplay will make money through interactive advertising on the app’s platform.

Barbara Corcoran wanted to know about their backgrounds. Caroline said they met in 2008 during their time at the Sesame Workshop. In there, Caroline handled digital media business development, and Dan managed interactive production. They made over 60 interactive products together for Sesame Street.

However, Barbara decided not to invest because she lost money due to a similar application before. Jason also went out of the deal stating that he also lost money due to a similar application. 

Finally, Mark offered $500,000 for 15% ownership. Dan suggested $500,000 for 3.25% ownership plus 0.75% in advisory shares. Mark then proposed $500,000 for 4% ownership, plus Overplay pays him $500,000 to promote and create content for the app.

The partners weren’t expecting such an offer, but after a brief pause, they agreed to Mark’s terms.
