Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
A revolution in social gaming has just arrived via a new game called Hospitopia. Perched at the intersection of social games and social good, Hospitopia launched on Facebook in 2011 in partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The cause-based social game helps raise funds through social gaming.
“We believe with the sheer numbers of people playing games in the social space, creating games that generate funds for worthy causes will revolutionize the way people support and give to the causes they hold dear,” said Jonas Hudson, founding partner and President of CausePlay, the company behind Hospitopia.
Hospitopia has partnered with JUMBiES, a plush toy company that has integrated a “mini-JUMBiES game” in Hospitopia as well as other game components. Players for the next five months starting today will be able to choose a CMNH hospital to play for and earn a donation of 50 JUMBiES for the kids in the preferred hospital! A grand total of 250 JUMBiES will be donated during the run of the promotion.
Within each game, CausePlay will offer sponsors the ability to seamlessly integrate their brand into the Hospitopia game. CausePlay calls the technique Cause Integration, and it promises to revolutionize product placement, consumer engagement and brand building
“We are excited to be working with CausePlay and their partner Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Hospitopia is a great vehicle to gain awareness and charitable donations for a worthy organization. We are proud to be associated with it”, said Stefan Marc, CEO of Jumbieland Industries, LLC (JUMBiES)
“Combining physical distribution and marketing with our partner, JUMBIES, we are able to reach a larger audience. Hospitopia will enjoy branding and messaging on Jumbies products at retail, directing players to the game, and JUMBiES will enjoy Cause Integration and the benefits of their own mini-game, said Hudson.
CausePlay has three additional games currently in production, each funding a different cause and set to enter the marketplace throughout 2011 and early 2012. Additionally, the company will launch a promotion via Facebook in May asking the public to vote on a nonprofit or cause they would like to see the company create a game concept for in 2012.
