…It’s TGI Friday: Dangeresque Roomiside 1: Behind The Dangerdesque?

Dangeresque

Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque is an old-school adventure game from Videlectrix that puts you in charge of Dangeresque, the detective alter-ego of Strong Bad from HomestarRunner.com.

The goal is to solve the unsolved murder case that Dangeresque said he solved months ago without leaving the room, because otherwise the chief will catch on to Dangeresque’s plan and throw him in jail. To reach that goal, you must WASD your way around the room and click on any objects of interest to talk to, look at, or use them towards the goal of solving three different missions as outlined in the case file.

As with anything Strong Bad, half the fun is just reading the words that come out of his mouth, and this game doesn’t disappoint, so though it might be a little on the short side, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

…It’s Movie Monday: Black Gold?

Black Gold

Black Gold is “a story about coffee and trade”.

    Multinational coffee companies now rule our shopping malls and supermarkets and dominate the industry worth over $80 billion, making coffee the most valuable trading commodity in the world after oil.

    But while we continue to pay for our lattes and cappuccinos, the price paid to coffee farmers remains so low that many have been forced to abandon their coffee fields.

    Nowhere is this paradox more evident than in Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. Tadesse Meskela is one man on a mission to save his 74,000 struggling coffee farmers from bankruptcy. As his farmers strive to harvest some of the highest quality coffee beans on the international market, Tadesse travels the world in an attempt to find buyers willing to pay a fair price.

    Against the backdrop of Tadesse’s journey to London and Seattle, the enormous power of the multinational players that dominate the world’s coffee trade becomes apparent. New York commodity traders, the international coffee exchanges, and the double dealings of trade ministers at the World Trade Organization reveal the many challenges Tadesse faces in his quest for a long term solution for his farmers.

It looks like a fascinating film, and definitely brings light to an issue that few Americans consider while waiting in line at the local Starbucks.

…The Mac Mini Pro has been made?

Mac Mini Pro

Apple doesn’t make one, so what do you do if you want a mini Mac tower?

Make one yourself.

Seen above are the results of one talented modder’s mission to create a tower out of Mac parts that kept with the general styling of Macputers.

The Mac Mini Pro is built around a Mac Mini, and features an aluminum case that is modeled after the Mac Pro, an additional USB port and power button in the front, and a slide-off side cover that exposes the hard drive for easy swaps.

…Project 7 has great packaging?

Project 7 Water

Remember Project 7, the non-profit that was going to change the world one product at a time?

Well they’re well on their way to becoming a charitable force with the new line of waters and gums that are available now or coming soon to a store near you, and The Dieline has more information about the packaging and the decisions that went into each one.

Project 7 Gum

Featuring the seven missions of Project 7 on the labels, each package tells a little bit of the Project 7 story, and you can then buy the label that matches the cause that you care about most, or spread out the love to help out each cause equally.

It might not be much, but every little bit counts, so if you’re going to buy water and gum anyways, why not buy the water and gum that goes to help out those in need?
