Firely Runner out today – 15% of revenue for charities
Red Kite Games, based in Huddersfield (located very close to my home town of Mirfield – hooray local team!), has launched Firefly Runner, an action packed, free-running, child friendly title for phones and tablets. Firefly Runner is a free to play game with only one 69p in app purchase to remove all advertisement. Red Kite Games will donate 15% of all revenue generated by Firefly Runner to the charities GamesAid and Special Effect, thus helping both charities in their work for children and young people.
The launch of Firefly Runner has been helped by a series of pro-bono collaborations from games companies including AppyNation, ACE, Carbon Digital, Game Republic, Johnny Atom Productions, Pitstop Productions, PressSpace, Sheridans and Universally Speaking all of whom have donated their services free of charge.
If you would like to find out more about the campaign, you can check more information here and even donate a little more to help the charities involved.
