Anti-corruption Video Game mimics Angry Birds

Anti-corruption Video Game mimics Angry Birds

According to SoCal Tech, Los Angeles- and Austin-based GameSalad, the iOS game creation software firm founded by Michael Agustin, Dan Treiman, Tan Tran, and Joshua Seaver, has an unlikely hand in the anti-corruption issues facing  India, and Indian activist Anna Hazare: a video game called “Angry Anna”.

The game–a takeoff the popular Angry Birds smartphone games–was developed with GameSalad’s software, and runs on HTML5 browsers and smartphones. GameSalad said the game has become a “viral hit” and has been played over 225,000 times since launching a week ago. The game was developed by Delhi area game development firm Geek Mentors Studio. Instead of birds, the game includes Indian anti-corruption figures Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev and Kiran Bedi.

What this means:

The Jon Stewart/Daily Show form of news/entertainment is becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Young people in India don’t see the boundaries that newspaper-reading pre-GenXers grew up with.
