The Greatest Story Never Told
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 29, 2004 – ZOOLOOK Entertainment, a San Francisco-based branded entertainment company has teamed up with UK-based Naked Penguin Boy Ltd. to create a Flash-based foosball game as part of a viral marketing campaign to introduce the return of The Greatest Story Never Told Flash storytelling competition.
TGSNT Miniball, which recently launched on TGSNT.com during Euro 2004, features the fun-loving Cave Dudes squaring off for a friendly game of stone-age football. The objective of the game is to be the first cave dude to score five goals to win the game. Game enthusiasts can choose between 1 or 2 player mode.
Nicholas Da Silva, CEO of ZOOLOOK Entertainment and founder/producer of TGSNT and FlashTV said, “In producing TGSNT, we wanted to add some fun to the event by introducing a new Cave Dude for each year the storytelling competition was held. For the 2nd annual event, we not only introduced our newest Cave Dude, but we also gave the cave dudes something fun to do; Miniball!”
Greg Heasley, Interactive Director of Naked Penguin Boy Ltd. said, “I think what makes this game work virally and why it is so popular is that itÂ’s based on such a classic real world game, its really fun to play and a great game to challenge your friends to. Although the Atlantic separated us for the duration of the project it all moved along very smoothly. Nicholas is doing a great job with TGSNT and we’re really happy to be involved it.”
