Los Angeles- and Austin-based GameSalad, the iOS game creation software firm founded by Michael Agustin, Dan Treiman, Tan Tran, and Joshua Seaver, has an unlikely hand in the anti-corruption issues facing the country of India, and Indian activist Anna Hazare: a video game called "Angry Anna". The game--a takeoff the popular Angry Birds smartphone games--was developed with GameSalad's software, and runs on HTML5 browsers and smartphones. GameSalad said the game has become a "viral hit" and has been played over 225,000 times since launching a week ago. The game was developed by Indian game development firm Geek Mentors Studio. Instead of birds, the game includes anti-corruption figures Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev and Kiran Bedi, and instead of pigs, it has politicians P. Chidambaram, Pranab Mukherjee, Suresh Kalmadi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
