Sustainaville Launch Mobile Gaming News:
Save the Children to launch charity-driven game, Sustainaville, on mobile, PC and Mac. All proceeds from in-game purchases go directly to international children’s charity.
Save the Children, the world’s leading independent organization for children, has teamed up with international developer of iOS and Android-based entertainment and edutainment applications, Good Game Productions, to launch an all new charity-focused game, Sustainaville.
Developed for mobile, PC and Mac, Sustainaville gives players the unique opportunity to confront challenges similar to those faced by aid workers – and the communities they help – in the real world every day.
This could include anything from providing food and healthcare for families so that their children can stay healthy and concentrate at school each day, to ensuring stable water supplies for communities and making sure those living in areas prone to disaster are well-prepared for natural hazards like earthquakes and hurricanes.
Players can utilize a unique “donation platform” to donate money directly to Save the Children and, in return, receive in-game currency and rewards like special characters. Around the world, Save the Children works to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
“No game can adequately convey the effort and dedication embodied by Save the Children’s aid workers, some of whom have risked their lives to help children in need. But it is our hope that through Sustainaville, players will gain a better appreciation for the challenges that aid workers face and, in their own way, work towards a better future for all children,” said Paul Ronalds, CEO of Save the Children in Australia, which is leading the project.
Sustainaville will go into beta shortly and will launch on PC, Mac, Android and iOS. Visit www.sustainaville.org for more information and to register for the closed beta.
