Look, we get it. You spend all of your time and energy perfecting your video game. Simply trying to get people to notice is extremely hard, you don’t have the resources to save the planet or bring peace to the world on top of that. The thing is: you don’t have to.
Take our proud member CrazyGames for example. The popular platform for playing video games directly in your web browser recently partnered up with eco startup OpenTabs to launch a web video game platform that saves trees as you play. For every 5 minutes played on the platform, which is only made possible by CrazyGames putting sustainability before net profit, a tree is saved.
In a similar gesture, they donated € 9750 to a government-approved Ukrainian charity that helps refugees and war victims back on their feet. That may be but a drop in the ocean, but at least it’s something.
We think these initiatives show corporate social responsibility doesn’t have to be complicated, and we sincerely hope their actions can serve as an inspiration to other local video game actors.
Speaking of which, they’ve also recently teamed up for the final sprint of fellow FLEGA member DAE Studios’ 2-Games-a-Month program. Participants got the chance to create a small web video game while making sure some requirements were met: replayability, quick sessions and of course fun gameplay! At the end of the sprint the teams with promising projects will be supported to bring their title to the platform.
If you’re also interested to have one of your titles join the CrazyGames family (and perhaps help save a few trees in the process) and show of your work to 19 million players, do swing by the developer portal to see what it’s all about. While there’s a push towards more original and exclusive content, there’s more than enough space for one or more quality titles.
