G-Shock

An interactive movie from Casio brand G-Shock about zombies is very dark:

Casio-GShock-Zombies

Play it over at the G-Shock microsite – fiveminutes.gs

Because I don’t mess around, I started off on difficulty level “hell”.  I didn’t make it far before I messed up on too many of the mouse patterns, and the dad (pictured above) revolver’d himself in the head all over the family pictures.  Not really what I was expecting from a company that makes watches.  Will Moms demand action on G-Shock now?  Will they demand action on Google for Chrome supporting HTML5?  With They demand action on all touchscreen and computer mice manufacturers?

I really don’t have the patience to keep playing the game and finding out what happens, but I have to say they definitely did a impressive job on the execution of this.  Product placement is obvious, but mainly because you knew in advance.  If you weren’t explicitly told it was a G-Shock promo, it’s not any more in your face than movies or TV shows are now.

Just when I thought zombies were done with…

Thoughts?  Anyone make it to the end?
