That’s what the people over at Bee the Swarm are trying to do. Through games and projects they want to change the way we help society one game at a time. Games like Candy Crush and Clash of Clans have many in app purchases, generating millions of dollars for the developers every day. Yes, that’s right EVERY DAY. Imagine if that kind of money could be generated to fund charities and how much good that can do!
CEO of Bee the Swarm Robert Slaughter said, “What Bee The Swarm wants to do is change the way that people interact with their smartphones. We want to give people all the things they know and love about social networking and gaming and mix them with things that ultimately benefit society.” The company released an amazing video on Facebook which summarizes what they are trying to do.
Their first game ZomBees released on the App Store a few days ago. In the game you play as PheeBee as you try to not only survive the Zombie apocalypse, but also find a cure. There are currently only 25 levels but over 300 more are in development. The game is available for free and has one in app purchase called “Health Pack” which can be purchased for $0.99. When you buy this health pack you aren’t just helping save the in-game world, you are also helping the real world a day at the time.
What makes ZomBees different than any other app on the planet is that the revenue from ZomBees goes to new charities everyday. That’s 100% of the revenue in case you wondered. The money goes to charities that help the homeless, for funding sexual assault hot-lines and even the printing of a prosthetic limb for a child, and these are just 3 examples of the many charities this game is helping. You may be thinking “how can they afford to make games then?”. The company plans to sell t-shirts and use crowdfunding for future applications which will sort out that funding problem.
ZomBees is just the first game in the line of hopefully many with games from endless runners to casino apps planned to be developed over the next 2 years. So if you want to help society by having fun playing video games then make sure to give ZomBees a download today.
