Harpooned – an editorial point

You’ve heard about the Japanese whaling research expeditions in Antarctic waters.

As a journalist, I naturally have no opinion about this, but there are at least three aussies who do, and they’ve just made an editorial game expressing them – Harpooned.

Voila le traileur:

Download and play the game for free at their website.

UPDATE: Harpooned is a fun shooter. The editorial punch comes from the vaguely sickening crunching sound your autofire explosive harpoons make as they punch through whale flesh. Nice soundtrack, too. This game is a good example of the “interactive editorial cartoon” genre pioneered by September 12th.
