Macromedia Promotes Shockwave with Election Game

Macromedia has put up a game at their site to promote Shockwave downloads. It is interesting because this is actually a game AT Macromedia’s site. Rarely has Macromedia ever funded game creation. This is part of their new initiative to promote Shockwave and increase the percentage of people that have the Shockwave player. It is also worth noting that the game was partially created by my friend Chuck Neal of MediaMacros.
Honestly, though, I don’t like the game. It doesn’t feature anything that really shows off Shockwave — notably 3D. This game could have easily been done with Flash, like my own election game. But it is good to see Macromedia spending money on Shockwave rather than Flash.
