Viwawa 1st Year Anniversary, looking back...

Today is the 1st of Dec 2008, and here at Viwawa we are celebrating our 1st official year providing quality gaming to our fellow gamers!

Looking back at the past year, there were so many events and milestones that we can be proud of.

Since 1st Dec 2007, we have released so many games, ranging from puzzles to educational. Sushido was one of our first games out in 2008, and this was followed by Zany Bridge, Wahlords. Taking feedback from our younger set of gamers, we then released educational games, like Numeroid and Groword. Who can forget our much loved Dynasty Chess, our own take on the popular Chinese chess.

Viwawa is so much more than just games. We provide a way for people to make friends, and have friendly competition among ourselves. We also wanted to create a great environment for our gamers, a Viwawa community. Our main avatar, Wawas, are so popular among our gamers. Our Wawas have good fashion sense, so we updated their wardrobe often. Anyone remember our Chinese New Year, Olympics, Hari Raya, F1, Halloween and Disney Wawas? Some of our gamers also like the updated Wawa Creation Interface. Gamers can also download their Wawas to their mobiles!

We also had such fun events, like the our Wawa Pageants, Easter Egg Event, Stwack & Match It Tournaments, Viwawa Ambassador, Best of Blogs and even Sushido Design contest!

What a busy year we had. There are so many other stuff we left out in this nostalgic look back, but we can't list everything here! We hope our gamers have enjoyed this little area in cyberspace that we created, and we will come out with more exciting things in the future too!

To thank all our gamers for their love and support, for this week only, they will get 20% more XP when they play all our games. Furthermore, they will get a chance to earn the Viwawa 1st Anniversary Badge!

Play and win games to earn the Viwawa 1st Anniversary Badge!
Criteria (Fulfill both):
- Play and win 5 or more different Viwawa players (must be at least level 2) in every game
- Be at a minimum of level 2 in every game before the end of the week

Badges will be awarded only after all records are verified by the system. Decision is final.


Have a good time Viwawa'ing!

What are you Thankful for?

Image From Wikipedia

It's Thanksgiving Day! Yes, we realise that it is not that celebrated around Singapore and the region, but we still think it's a good reminder for us about the simple things in life.

Here at Viwawa, we are thankful for our healthy families, being happy just by spending time with each other. We are also thankful for having great friends and colleagues, people we can count on in dire times.

Of course, we are thankful to all our gamers for making Viwawa such a great place to be.

Anything you readers are thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!!

Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!

Yesterday, 18th Nov is Mickey's birthday! Guess how old is he? He's 80! According to The Straits Times, Mickey first appeared in the movies at the Colony Theater in New York on 18th Nov, 1928.

As a tribute to Mickey, some of our Viwawa Wawas (randomly selected) have come forward to wish Mickey a very Happy Birthday!

Beware of Facebook scammers

Taken from the 'The Sydney Morning Herald', apparently scammers are now targeting Facebook as their new platform to cheat some 'evil money'.

Using password stealers, scammers now take over Facebook accounts, and using 'social engineering tactics', attempt to get the compromised account's owner's friends to send some money over.

Please be careful of such cases, and protect yourself in cyberspace.
