Hello everyone,
We wanted to share a small video on how the Battle for Beauty game event was created and carried out in the city of Toronto, earlier this month. From concept development to the set-up of our giant interactive screen, watch it all culminate in a great online and on-street celebration. With our game, Battle for Beauty, we took browser-based gaming to a whole new level.
Enjoy the clip!

Pictures are nice, but there is nothing like video to really show off! Watch the people on the streets of Toronto fight for the beauty of the web. Tonight is the last night to try the on-site game yourself, we’ll meet you corner Richmond W & John from 9PM to midnight.

If you can’t make it tonight, try it out on your favorite browser and take some time to play with Internet Explorer 9 and see the difference for yourself.

Thank you Metrik for the video.
