(April 12, 2012 –Vancouver) New Indigo Ventures, Inc. announces the immediate availability of The Dolphin Ocean Rescue game for the iPad and iPhone. This 3D mobile game entertains, raises awareness and gives back to organizations that protect marine habitats. Download here: http://goo.gl/USPPc
Players help Daniel Dolphin and his friends build and manage a virtual reef environment while bringing awareness to users about the issues surrounding our marine ecosystem. The objectives are all focused on balancing the species and maintaining the food chain, making good decisions about what to buy, plant and harvest. Managing fish population, coral growth and habitat balance form the basis of each of the 20 levels objectives. Over fishing, pollution, threats from humans and other stressors to the environment cause discord in the habitat.
As players make their way through the levels, they are provided with messages, developed in partnership with our Eco Partners, about each stressor affecting that level. Achieving all the objectives is a proxy or a “health barometer” for the reef as a whole.
While the Dolphin Ocean Rescue is FREE TO PLAY, there are inApp purchases that help users accelerate their play or unlock premium items. A portion of revenues collected are donated to our growing list of globally focused marine Eco-Partners, which include:
- Project Seahorse, http://seahorse.fisheries.ubc.ca/ , UBC, Vancouver, Canada
- Planeta Oceano http://www.planetaoceano.org/ Lima, Peru.
The Daniel Dolphin character is from a best selling book and award winning animated film series called The Dolphin, Story of a Dreamer, by Sergio Bambaren.
