WarioWare style ‘#SAVE Animal Hero’ iOS and Android launch

#SAVE Animal Hero, an original collection of warioware-style minigames for mobiles

p>MADRID, SPAIN - November 2nd, 2017 - The indie team Platonic Games, one of the Top 10 finalists in the Indie Games Contest, launches its new game ‘#SAVE Animal Hero’ for iOS and Android on November 2nd. A game that talks about animal abuse frivolization through a series of seemingly happy mini games. All its proceeds will be donated to WWF, hopefully adding a grain of sand to help changing the sad reality the game itself portrays.

Description

Save the cutest animals in this arcade mini games collection! Their lives are in your hands!

Which one is the smallest of the world's? A super-globalized Earth? Life inside an ant colony? Pluto? When we thought about it for a while, we realized the smallest of the worlds may be something oppressive instead.

Think about a cage.

Think about having each day less space to live.

Think about someone controlling and limiting all your actions, every day.

Think about living only to serve and die.

Think about not being human in this world.

We created the smallest of the worlds… but it might not be the world we enforce the animals to live in. The smallest of the worlds could also be our narrow mind, every time we refuse to see what we are really doing :’(

¿Why minigames?

We wanted to “talk” about as many topics as possible, so we though a bunch of simple-but-addictive mini games would fit this goal. Inspired by WarioWare style games like ‘Dumb Ways To Die’ we wanted #SAVE to feel friendly but meaningful at the same time. Hope we achieved it!

What early players said about #SAVE Animal Hero

“Great game! You really managed to balance the message with a more fun, addictive game design! It’s hard to talk with people about those topics, so maybe this is a way to approach things.”

“Very thoughtful game with a big message about our small world. Well done!”

“Really like this game! Love the art style and ‘dark humor’!

If you like arcade minigames with simple and addictive mechanics - and you also want to change the world - you may enjoy playing #SAVE! :D
