PRESS RELEASE

IMMEDIATE ISSUE

03 OCTOBER 2012

This year’s Really AWESOME Gaming Expo, rAge, will keep techno-junkies hooked for hours with a variety of interactive and exciting attractions, competitions, products and games. A novel addition this year is that Apex Interactive will be featuring the Angry Birds Alley at rAge, giving gamers the chance to take on Angry Birds in real life!

For just a small charitable donation, visitors to rAge can throw Angry Birds at those bad Piggies to win a prize. A minimum donation of R5 gets you three throws. Show the world just how skilfully you can conquer Angry Birds! Prizes include Angry Birds games for PC, Plush Toys and sweets.

What’s more is that all of the proceeds will go to FreeMe, a volunteer group dedicated to rescuing orphaned, abandoned, injured and displaced indigenous birds, mammals and reptiles in northern Johannesburg. FreeMe treats approximately 10 000 animals each year, providing specialised treatment, care and rehabilitation.  The ultimate aim for the organisation is to release wildlife back into its natural habitat in areas carefully chosen, including reserves and conservancies ( www.freemewildlife.org.za).

Organised and managed by NAG Magazine, the country’s leading gaming, computer and technology magazine, this year’s rAge is going to be an experience like never before. The tenth annual rAge expo will run from 5-7 October 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in JHB, offering an enticing platform of one of the fastest growing and most popular entertainment industries in the world. The question is if you will be able to defeat Angry Birds in the real world?

Ends.
