A global tour of gaming innovation
Mark St. Andrew
The best games can awaken some extreme emotions. This clip shows a young boy crying, screaming and laughing as his dad teaches him how to play Angry Birds.
This could be the first ever branded computer game, from 1983.
Produced for the
Atari 1200 by Coca-Cola as a promotional gift at a sales conference.
Copies of Coke Invaders sells for upwards of $2,000 on eBay.
Despite some rocky beginnings, there is an audience appetite, or at least an appreciation, for brands in the gaming world.
This (sadly only fictional) animation shows a fictional combat game starring Colonel Sanders from KFC and Ronald McDonald in arm to arm combat. .
