Rolling Toomer’s Corner? There’s an app for that. Or at least there will be soon.
Brooke Bramlett, a sales and marketing director for Overtime Software, says that Auburn’s Division of Student Affairs has commissioned the Baton Rouge-based sports software development company to write a video game app for iPad and iPhone called Roll Toomer’s Corner.
The project has been the works since May.
“We were in conversation with Auburn’s Athletics Department about football and scouting software and mobile apps and Auburn’s student affairs department caught wind of it and asked us to do it,” Bramlett says.
Though the app is still in beta testing, Bramlett confirmed that it is indeed a game.
“I don’t really remember how the scoring system works but I know you can either earn badges or credentials.”
The company released a screen shot of the game via Twitter late Friday afternoon. Included in the game’s visuals are the Toomer’s Oaks, the Toomer’s Corner eagle statues, and the orange tiger paw print in the middle of the intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue.
And of course, toilet paper.
Bramlett says Overtime Software hopes to have the app available for download by September.
