dx hosts RSPCA's Facebook game

dx the leading custom hosting solution and services provider dedicated to the games industry, is pleased to announce that it is providing infrastructure, hosting and IP transit for the RSPCA's charity campaign Facebook game ' THINK PIG'.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has launched a social game on Facebook to promote the core messages of their THINK PIG campaign in an entertaining and engaging way. The THINK PIG campaign uses a fun Facebook word game to raise awareness of the standards in which pigs are reared. As well as being entertained, players will learn what labels to look out for to buy higher welfare products in the supermarket. The RSPCA is reaching a new audience through this casual gaming approach.
