Indie Game Bundle – Choose Your Own Price

May 5, 2010

Everybody likes finding a good bargain, and that’s exactly what this is. Wolfire Games is an excellent indie game developer, with a couple of wins tucked under its belt. All five games are cross-platform (Win/Mac/Linux) and DRM free. This is a sales model that’s becoming established, and I like it – more on this after the jump.

The games they’re bundling are:

Amnesia Razorfish does Movember

November 26, 2009

The month of mo-growing, mo-itching and mo-ridicule is almost over. Amnesia have shown sterling character with their Movember efforts … and raised rather alot of cash. For the benefit of our overseas friends, the rules are simple: Grow a ‘Mo’ and raise money for men’s cancer and depression charities. 

Now many of you (yes you – working in other Razorfish offices around the world) haven’t donated yet. Please dig-deep and support the Amnesiafish crew and this very worthy cause. Ends Monday when we will announce our final team total.

Blog Action Day 2008, Oct.15, is a chance for the digital community to unite against global poverty by creating loud messages of hope, outrage and solutions to this difficult global problem.

To inspire bloggers across the nation to participate, World Vision Australia is running a contest (here) to see who can write, draw, record and share the most compelling message about global poverty.

With the help of Amnesia, Yahoo!7 and Google, the grand prize winners of the WVA contest will be flown to Sydney for an exclusive digital training day with each of the above. It even includes an hour of time getting hands on with one of the only Microsoft Surface tables in Australia here at Amnesia.

So don’t be a passive observer.

Connecting Lives Exhibition Sydney,

July 15, 2008

A great new exhibition (info here) coinciding with World Youth Day which allows you to step through the life of an African child (there are three stories, three children of which you follow one). It’s a very moving experience which takes about 20 minutes in total and highlights some of the individual problems and tragedy still facing children today in Africa.

I had a good read through the comments at the end and people were definitely affected in a positive way.

There’s no hard sell, or guilt trip – this is just a message of hope. It’s free, but if you can’t make it there are plenty of ways to get involved from the World Vision website:
