In the Spirit of the Holidays: Cyber-Activism

Recently, the following causes have come to our attention, and we think they are pretty damn cool. Please check them out, and if you think they are cool too, please come together and give them whatever support you can.

http://www.childsplaycharity.org/ - Provides toys, books and video games to sick kids in children's hospitals on four continents

http://www.videogamevoters.org/ - A network of American voters trying to defend free speech and creativity in video games from intrusive US legislation and regulation.

http://www.xogiving.org/ - Provides laptop computers to children in developing nations, who otherwise have almost no access to education or means of self-expression.

Isis Strike Live on Download

Much earlier this week, our game Isis Strike went live on CNet's Download.com network. If you haven't checked it out yet, please click the button below and check it out now.

Get it from CNET Download.com!

Isis Strike is a fast-paced, horizontal-scrolling, 2D space shooter for Windows XP/Vistas. Like Trippy Ballz, it is another wacky treat for fans of retro/arcade style computer games... but don't take our word for it, check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.

Oh... did I mention it's free? :)

PS: Please have a Happy and safe Turkey Day, everyone!

Myspace Diabocle

In our last blog entry, we mentioned our fairly new Myspace.com profile page. Well apparently, that was our jinx move of the weekend.

Yesterday morning, the Myspace profile for NinjaGirl Productions received and unusually high number (hundreds) of unsolicited friend invites. Likely related, at some point later in the day, the profile page was inexplicably deleted.


We have since emailed Myspace a few times on the matter, but are yet to get a reply. Now this, in and of itself, is strange and frustrating enough, but here's the really odd and annoying part:

Today when we checked the email address associated with our Myspace profile, it turns out we are still getting a significant number of friend invites well after the profile disappeared. Yup, that's right, we're still getting emails that say, "So-and-so would like to be added as one of your friends" even though nothing really exists at our Myspace URL, and we can't even log into Myspace anymore!

Honestly, we don't know or care how this is possible; but regardless of Myspace's chosen level of responsibility on the matter, the fact is we are getting numerous emails generated and sent to us by Myspace in regard to something that doesn't even exist anymore... so basically, for all intents and purposes, our profile got deleted for no apparent reason and Myspace is now inadvertently spamming the crap out of us... yay.

Myspace Page

Y'know, from network television to stand-up comedy to free games, it's getting so you can't be or promote anything online without, at least briefly, having a profile on myspace.com. So, a few weeks back it was decided we simply had to add some metaphoric pee to this trendy crowded swimming pool:

So, if you have a Myspace page and you promise not to spam us with Macy's card offers and webcam invites, feel free to add us sometime.
