ETC project team Amalgamedia, together with the band Anti-Flag, spent the spring semester creating a one of a kind transmedia experience. The team created a web based interactive music video for Anti-Flag using Facebook, HTML5 and film. The experience will take a user on a journey to see how their information posted on Facebook is really used.
The project is now live on monetizinginc.com so go ahead and check it out!

We love hearing from the ETC alumni about the different projects and games they are involved with. Last week we received email from alumnus Lilian Chan ('11) asking us to try a new game. Below is her email.
FREEQ is an audio adventure game about eavesdropping and meddling with the future.
The game turns your handheld device into an antenna that can pick up and hijack radio signals from the distant future.
You can spy on the last society on Earth, interfere with people's lives, and try to solve the mystery of what ended the world.
The game is interesting and fun. I recommend it to everybody.
If you like it, please don't hesitate to leave us a comment.
Congratulations to our friend at Psychic Bunny!
