For some reason this little Paper Plane game has developed a life of it’s own. The words addiction, annoying and aaaaarrghhhh seem to be used commonly. Sorry everyone… we only made it for a laugh 😉
|Original Viral Game||Xbox 360 Version||Mock Ads (NEW – Jan 08)|
|It just keeps spreading… a good throw is over 115m. You can find cheats in comments below or on YouTube||Slightly different graphics and tweaked flight. A good score is over 140m.
|We have no idea how far you can throw a migrant. But would you even want to????
Jan 15 – The Paper Plane engine was just re-purposed by us for the AdNews ‘mock-ads’ (it is not a real site, but a what if…) If you’re bored of throwing planes then try throwing a Migrant! Play here. Note: Please read the intro before you get the wrong idea… this is a ‘reverse psychology ad’ that carries the real social message …at the end.
Jan 4 2008 – Approaching 200 million games. The game was even mentioned in US Rolling Stone Magazine in December. So we’re starting to think about a new version and we’d love any feedback and requests for what you’d like to see improved/new features. We’ve set a page for your thoughts here.
ABOUT THE ORIGINAL VERSION:
It’s simple – throw the plane as far as you can using your mouse. You can play a game in less than 5 seconds. But if you’re like most people, you might have more than a few throws. There are plenty of tips and tricks from nice people below in the comments so read on if you are stuck.
Game History: We built this mini game for a FlightSim X promo/competition in Dec 06. It finished it’s run after 6 weeks on NineMSN in Australia (did very well) and we pulled it from air when the competition ended. In April 07 we stuck it up on our archive server, and we put a link to it here in our blog. We have no idea how the game spread given that we did nothing to promote it, but we do really appreciate everyone (now counted in millions) giving up their valuable minutes to play. We intend to keep it up and running as long as people like it and want to play it, and hopefully we can pump out some new versions in the future if the demand is there.
Oh finally… we do apologise to people who have spent so much time, lost jobs, wives etc …over a (let’s be honest) rather annoying little game…
Love Amnesia 🙂
