goodXgames has developed a new approach to video games and revenue models, the game uses 50% of profits to bring solar electricity to communities in Haiti and other developing countries. The crowdfunding campaign will initially raise funding for Solar Games: Battle, an arena based enviro-apocalyptic solar kart battle. Additional Stretch Goal funding will allow for the completion of Solar Games: Racing and the Impact partner network in Haiti. Please share the campaign link and back the project to be part of the coalition. “After a year of development with our US & Haiti teams, we need that last stretch of funding to roll out Solar Games: Battle by the Holidays as our gift to Haiti. As our funding is dried up, we need Indiegogo’s community to help us.” -Bradley Bulifant, CEO goodXgames
The purpose of The Solar Games is to utilize entertaining and innovative approaches to fund energy access initiatives through a video game. Fifty percent of game profits are contributed to a low interest fund for microfinance institutions and installers to provide solar PV systems for communities without electricity. The game experience integrates new approaches to player’s choice in gaming, music and integrated visual music experiences that includes exclusive artist content, comedic backing commentary and new options for in-game purchases.
The Solar Games is being developed to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative and goodXgames, Inc. is a member of the UN Foundation’s Energy Access Practitioners Network. goodXgames is building the Solar Games to be initially based on real world locations around Haiti with plans for China, India and Africa. The Solar Games is being developed for iOS, Android, Ouya, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, PC, Mac and Linux and will be released as “E for Everyone” by the ESRB.
