Even though Facebook thinks the 12 Days of Christmas started today, the actual start of the twelve days of Xmas is the day after Christmas.  That said, we figured why not jump on the Facebook bandwagon and share the holiday classic “12 Days of Chistmas” sung by none other than Bob & Doug McKenzie (Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis) with animation by Animax Entertainment.

At the end of the song you’ll see a trailer for the animated TV show “Bob & Doug” which aired in Canada – there are still 5 more secret episodes ready to be released in Canada.  For folks here in the US wanting to see the TV show, there are some things in the works to make that happen too.

Animax just helped Healthy Lifestyle Choices with a creative design and character development initiative.  We developed a whole new cast of characters, a story bible and other assets that the non-profit will use to help empower youth with the knowledge and skills practice to make healthy choices for a lifetime.  In the coming weeks, the new characters will start being integrated into their nationally distributed curriculum materials.  HLC’s aims are to address issues that are currently getting a lot of media attention – everything from conflict resolution to bullying to healthy eating and exercise to substance abuse.

It’s always good when Animax gets to help good.

As even Hitachi, puts it “Today’s IT infrastructure can be a complex and often accidental architecture made up of servers, switches and storage devices from multiple vendors.”  Animax just helped to make it a little more understandable in a series of animated videos.

Sometimes Animax clients are a little shy and don’t want us talking about our work with them. So let’s just say we worked on another popular kids virtual world recently developing new features for it.  We also worked on an iPad app for kids.  Kids play with the “darndest” things these days.

Bravo’s Top Chef just got a new Facebook connected game called Basic Training.  The new social game is a collection of cooking drills that gauge your skills in recipe recall, knife skills, and presentation.  When you think you can cut the mustard, play in competition mode and play all three drills back to back.  If you’re good enough you might be able to get ranked on the leaderboard, earn virtual goods in the form of medals and badges, brag to your friends by posting on your Facebook wall and maybe impress Padma and Tom.  So, soldier, do you think you’re up to the Bravo Top Chef Basic Training challenge?  Play now.

Animax has developed numerous social games lately with a mix of promotional marketing related ones as well as profit driven ones.  Our initial experience in the social gaming space was with virtual worlds and we continue to be active in the space — we are currently developing three different ones in addition to a couple Facebook connected games.
