I’m coining a new term today. “Pay2Care.” Feel free to call it P2C if you wish, but you know what? I wouldn’t mind if every game I ever played fell into the P2C category. Sustainaville may not be a game I would play all that much, but it certainly deserves a nod for creating both awareness and for providing funding to people that need a little help, specifically Save the Children.
Developed by Good Game Productions for PC and Mac, Sustainaville gives players the unique opportunity to confront challenges similar to those faced by aid workers – and the communities they help – in the real world every day. This could include anything from providing food and healthcare for families so that their children can stay healthy and concentrate at school each day, to ensuring stable water supplies for communities and making sure those living in areas prone to disaster are well-prepared for natural hazards like earthquakes and hurricanes.
Want to spend some money in the cash shop? Players can utilize a unique “donation platform” to donate money directly to Save the Children and, in return, receive in-game currency and rewards like special characters. Around the world, Save the Children works to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
