Whales Get Their Revenge

Whales Get Their
Answer: Get 1,000,000 signatures and have fun at the same time! One Million… that’s the number of names Melbourne web design company WebDummy wants to collect in a petition to the International Whaling Commission.
The idea is simple, design a fun, free online game and use the internet to spread the word.
People visit WhalesRevenge.com, play the game, sign a petition and then email their friends about the game.
Like most people, web designer Patrick Bonello was frustrated and upset by what’s going in the Southern Ocean and like most people he felt powerless to do anything about it, until now.
“We’ve all seen whales been harpooned and sliced into bloody pieces on our tv’s – but what can one person do?”
He’s convinced that many more people feel the same way so he has set out to prove the point.
Whales Revenge is an attempt to draw more attention to what’s going on, but it’s also a good way to take out some of your frustrations in fun way. The whales finally get their revenge on the whaling ships in a classic arcade style game.
The game: WhalesRevenge.com
The Aim: Save four whales by sinking the whaling ships while avoiding the harpoons.
