Released in collaboration with charity : Water
Scopely, a California games developer, have released their latest social game, Bubble Galaxy with Buddies. The studio founded in 2011 has partnered with charity: water, to bring safe, clean drinking water to people in developing nations, and by downloading this game, players will help fund a water program in Burkina Faso, a country in West Africa where 59 percent of the population lack access to safe water.
“We are a socially conscious startup, and believe in creating mobile games that empower our players to be the catalysts for positive social change,” said Walter Driver, co-founder and CEO of Scopely. “With the help of charity: water we’re refurbishing two main wells in Burkina Faso, and our players keep the water flowing simply by getting new friends to experience Bubble Galaxy With Buddies.”
“There are currently eight million people on the planet without access to clean, safe water,” said Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity: water. “charity: water is excited to receive support from Scopely and help make a real impact in Burkina Faso. Even as a startup, they understand that it’s never too early to give back and to creatively engage their gaming audience with the urgent issue of the water crisis.”
The game is a classic bubble-shooting action game, where players can select from three main characters, each with a unique power. New planets are unlocked upon the completion of each level, where players gain access to new challenges and power-ups.
