I have amazing news to share!  DHSGiT has been nominated for Best Writing by the Writers Guild of America. Just look at who we're up against!!! (see below)

This is great news for the indie community, and we wanted our press release convey attention on the indie scene. If we win, I'll accept the award 'for all the ugly people'... :-)

Writer's Guild of America recognizes, nominates indie developer.


15 Jan 2009 — Mousechief, Co. is astounded to receive a WGA nomination for Best Writing in a Videogame, for 'Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!'

Each year, the Writers Guild of America recognizes great writing in the entertainment industry. Their nascent award for videogames allows writers from a new craft to be recognized alongside established media professionals, such as this year's nominees, including Tina Fey, Woody Alan, Bill Maher, and the Cohen brothers.

Mousechief, Co. faces competition from 'Star Wars: The Force Unleashed' by Lucasarts, 'Fallout 3'  by Bethesda Softworks, 'Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3' by EA Games, and 'Tomb Raider: Underworld' by Eidos Interactive. What sets us apart from the competition is that Mousechief is a one-person company plus a few part-time contractors. Can two obscure writers, working for scant pay other than freedom, withstand the financial and P.R. might of game industry giants?

The WGA awards will be held on February 7th, 2008 simultaneously in Los Angeles and New York. Mousechief, Co. will be in L.A., hoping for an award and the chance of being recognized by the mainstream entertainment industry.

With this nomination, the Writer's Guild of America has provided opportunity for independent game developers to pursue a wider audience. Our nomination will encourage other indies to break out of the core gamer sub-culture, with products for mainstream players who might relish novel games.

Mousechief Co. humbly thanks the WGA for their nomination and the fresh hope they offer for all indie game developers striving to realize their dreams.


Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!' has been garnering awards for a while:

Oct 2007 - Awarded Most Innovative Game by the Casual Game Association.
 Jul 2008 - Gold Award for #1 game of the month, by GameTunnel.com.
Oct 2008 - Finalist in the IndieCade international games festival.
Dec 2008 - Adventure G.O.T.Y.,  Innovation G.O.T.Y., and #4 G.O.T.Y, by GameTunnel.com.
Dec 2008 - Two honorable mentions in Gamezebo.com's year-end wrap-up.



DHSGiT is an easily learned game of whimsically 'naughty' mini-games, literary satire, and adventurous role-playing. This is the game where good girls get better by being bad! Because you know, "Well-behaved women seldom make history."

It is not intended for children and has been rated TEEN using the T.I.G.R.S. rating system.

With competition like that, you should have no trouble winning the award.
