For the first time ever, Outfit7 is participating in Playing for the Planet’s Green Game Jam 2023 - a global initiative with the goal of using gaming to foster environmental action. Our players will have an opportunity to take part in helping safeguard endangered wildlife in authentic, fun, and meaningful ways through two in-game activations; Talking Tom Gold Run Grow & Go Token Event and My Talking Angela 2 Balcony feature.
Additionally, we will be making a donation to the tune of 60,000 USD to Re:wild, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting critically endangered Harlequin Toads. Re:wild is a non-profit organization that protects and restores the wild. They work closely with the Atelopus Survival Initiative, which is dedicated to protecting harlequin toads, one of the most threatened groups of amphibians in the world, including in the Amazon Rainforest.
Talking Tom Gold Run - Grow & Go Event
From today, players in Talking Tom Gold Run can participate in the “Grow & Go” event, where they collect special water droplets to nurture their very own in-game tree. As players help their trees grow, endangered animals from the Amazon appear, and players are rewarded for their conservation efforts with in-game treats, including in-game currencies.
My Talking Angela 2 - Balcony Feature
Meanwhile, in My Talking Angela 2, the green action is taking place on Talking Angela’s brand new Balcony. In this new feature, players help Angela grow flowers, aiming to attract and take care of bees – creatures that are vital to sustaining the Amazon ecosystem.
Both events will be available from June 1 to June 12, 2023, then every weekend until the end of June.
The Power of Play
“Joining Green Game Jam 2023 is a testament to our commitment to making a positive impact in the world,” comments Xinyu Qian, CEO of Outfit7. “Both in-game events provide an engaging and fun way for players to learn about the importance of preserving the Amazon rainforest, and to inspire them to take action to protect it.“
