Hudson Entertainment is asking gamers and non-gamers to participate in a charity event for the children. For every person who “likes” the Lost in Shadows fanpage, Hudson Entertainment will donate 10 cents to Child’s Play, “a community-based charity with its roots in the gaming industry, founded by the creators of Penny-Arcade.com.” As an added bonus, anyone who changes their profile pic into that of a shadow, Hudson Entertainment will donate $1 instead of 10 cents. You have to act fast though because today is the last day to help as all “likes” and shadow images will be counted by the end of today, September 7th.
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Aug. 30, 2010 – Beginning August 30, Hudson Entertainment will ask gamers and non-gamers alike to make a difference in a young child’s life. For every person who ‘Likes’ the Lost In Shadow page (www.facebook.com/lostinshadow) Hudson will donate 10 cents to Child’s Play, a community-based charity with its roots in the gaming industry, founded by the creators of Penny-Arcade.com. For those who want to donate more; by changing their profile picture to a picture of a shadow, any shadow, Hudson will jump up the amount to a $1 donation. All ‘Likes’ and Shadow Profile Pictures will be counted on the Lost In Shadow page at the end of Shadows to Light Day, Sept 7th, 2010.
Lost in Shadow follows a shadow of a boy as he attempts to climb around and up a mystical tower. Along the way, players must solve mysteries, puzzles and fight off enemies that try to impede the boy’s progress. The “Shadows to Light” event aims to help cast light in a young child’s life by contributing to the donations of toys, games, books, and monetary contributions for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America.
“Child’s Play is excited about Shadows To Light Day and the opportunity it’s creating for children across the nation,” said Kristin Lindsay, Foundation Coordinator for Child’s Play. “We invite the vibrant gaming community to join in, log onto Facebook, and help us make a difference!”
Participants can also “follow” Hudson on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hudsonent for updates on the event and game. Be sure to stop by Hudson’s booth at PAX from September 3 – 5, located at booth #842 for a chance to play Lost in Shadow!
Lost in Shadow will be released in North America on Jan. 4, 2011 for WiiTM. For more information on Lost in Shadow, please visit www.lostinshadow.com.
