Intern Abuser Wins Silver W3

Intern Abuser Wins Silver W3

Almost a year after the slapstick carnage changed our intern’s feelings about Nerf guns and robots forever, NeoPangea's Intern Abuser continues to win prestigious awards. The latest accolades come in the form of a Silver W3 Award in the "Game—Self Promotion" category. As always, we're honored to have our work recognized by our peers in the industry, and we're already thinking of new ways to top ourselves.

A ground-breaking interactive experiment in high-tech tomfoolery, the Intern Abuser event was an international success. The experience fused custom robotics, HTML, digital and mechanical gaming elements, and lighthearted skullduggery into a hilarious cybernetic fun machine. Players from all over the world were granted an exclusive opportunity to aim and fire NeoPangea's robotic weaponry over the Internet at targets in the office. Meanwhile, live video feeds and social media components kept participants actively engaged via an elegant custom browser-based interface.

"Being 'abused' as part of Intern Abuser was actually a lot of fun for me, and it has opened doors for me in ways that I never thought were possible," said Frank Marsters, former NeoPangea intern. "I love robotics and viral-style entertainment, and Intern Abuser was a great combination of both."

The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web, and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award-winning sites, marketing programs, and video work created for the web. In honoring outstanding websites, web advertising, web video, and mobile apps. The W3 Awards is the first major web competition to be accessible to the biggest agencies, the smallest firms, and everyone in between.
