Glupod: Online Game Lets Players Save Real Lives

    ATHENS, Greece, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - If you could help end world hunger, save
endangered species or reverse global warming by having fun playing a game
online, would you do it? Beginning this summer, you can.

    A small group of socially conscious people from three continents have
developed an online game designed to help the environment and fight poverty in
the real world by turning game rewards into real-life help for social and
environmental causes.
    The game, called Glupod, will debut worldwide on May 30. It's the
brainchild of Ioannis Tsiokos of Athens and a small band of colleagues at
Something, Inc. who collaborate online from Greece, India, the United States
and the United Kingdom.
    Glupod players will be able to provide food for a starving child in
Africa, protection for a whale species going extinct or offset carbon
emissions and help fight global warming - all by playing Glupod, the first
Video Game to deliver direct emotional fulfillment to the player.
    In a nutshell, Glupod gives gamers a variety of real-world causes to
choose from and enables them to convert their in-game winnings into actual
help for that cause.
    "A Glupod gamer has a real purpose and a human mission," says Ioannis,
managing director and co-founder of Something Inc. "Glupod is more than a
game. It's a simple, fun way to do good that anyone with a computer and access
to the Internet can participate in."
    "Being a casual game at its core, Glupod is a simple and emotional online
experience that both children and adults can enjoy in their free time" says
George Rokas, an angel investor in Something Inc. "Glupod fosters human
fulfillment by enabling players to make substantial difference in the world in
small chunks of time. Giving back has never been so much fun."
