One of several Flash games parodying the recent Iraqi shoe tossing incident has been sold on Ebay, according to Reuters.
SockAndAwe was created by Alex Tew, an Englishman. Tew commented on the sale:
We've spent the last three days trying to keep the servers alive and we're meant to be working on our other main startup PopJam. So we whacked it on eBay. It's really cool. From Monday concept, Tuesday launch, Wednesday growth, we've had a Thursday exit -- so it's kind of a micro-Web start up if you like.
It was just a bit of fun, a bit of an experiment. It's actually turned out to be a useful fundraising exercise for our start-up, which is good given the present economic circumstances.
An unspecified British media firm bought the game for 5,215 pounds ($7,818).
