    yes, I read about this and played the game before.
    But honestly. The game is absolutely boring.
    It would have been a nice viral thing many years ago (ie in the 90′s). Don’t you think so, too?
    Why would anyone bother about this or tell their friends? (I read somewhere else, that this is a serious attempt to create a viral effect!)
    I doubt this will have great success…

  2. I agree with you the game might be boring, but at least I like the fact they’ve tried to create a mechanism which is actually connected to their business. This doesn’t often happen with advergames. Most of them focus on the entertainment side, missing the real link with the brand.
