Game with Social Media

Today we’re thrilled to announce a new release specifically designed for our fun-loving Hoot-fans — all your favorite Owls are now starring in an action-packed, in-dash game for both web and mobile HootSuite accounts.

Give a big hoot for Happy Owls!

HootSuite Happy Owls for iPhone

The folks at HootSuite HQ know that staring at streams all day is tough, so what better way to pass the time than an in-dash game built specifically for HootSuite users? This game will bring you hours of high-flying Owl action. And it’s available for you to try today.

How it Works

The Happy Owls are waiting to take off, but they need your help! Set their flight plan so they can reach new limits and hit bigger targets. Fling these feathered flyers through multiple levels with challenging obstacles and tricky targets.

Unlock new Owls as you go, and use their specific skills at every level. Each Owl is different, take a look:

Classic Owly
This Owl is your go-to for straight-shooting target-busting action. Classic Owly is with you from start to finish, and will help you unlock the other Owls in the parliament.

Santa Owly
Happy Owls wouldn’t be complete without Jolly old Santa Owly! This seasonal secret Owl can be unlocked in snowy levels for chimney targets and holiday hooting.

Pirate Owly
This is one tough Owl — gamers beware! But if you master the flight plan for Pirate Owly you’ll earn big points. Be careful! This Owl only has one eye, so depth manoeuvres are tough.

Hahaha!! Nice April Fools joke!! Funny thing is, I think the game would be very popular if it was actually real...

p.s. I'm installing the HootBar (I presume that is a real one!!)

Well, I got burned by a classic April Fool's Day joke! I got the two emails from your CEO, one of which included the retraction of the first. When someone else who got the emails told me they were an elaborate viral marketing prank, I felt totally pwnd.

Well played, gentlemen!

Nicely done for April Fool's!

I didn't even notice the "Confidential and Internal" part of the first message's subject line, but thought it was shocking when I first started reading it.

But by the time I got to the end, and then got the retraction email later in the day I was laughing pretty hard.

Good job...

Nice rip off of that disgruntled birds game. Very creative.

I'm puzzled as to why you have published this - and programmed a pop-up to appear when I logged onto HootSuite this morning - because I just received an email from your CEO saying to keep this confidential until Monday. Are you in the games business now - and should I return to TweetDeck? I would be very sad!!

Very clever, indeed. Owls are much better than birds. That's a fact!
