This past November, I had the opportunity to visit Zambia, Africa on the trip of a lifetime. Our trip included staying in a local village and living in the home of a family there. Our list of things to bring included quite a bit, but most importantly, they stressed mosquito nets and bug spray. Why? Because malaria is a top concern in this country and in Africa as a whole. The good news is, you don’t have to travel there to start making a difference. Game developer Seriously with their new game Best Fiends has partnered with Malaria No More to share life-saving education and offer opportunities for giving – just by playing a free app on your smartphone or tablet device.
A bit more about Best Fiends from their site:
From the Green Glades to the foothills of Mount Boom, the small creatures of Minutia lived in harmony, until the night the meteor struck…The meteor smashed into Mount Boom, bringing with it a strange force that transformed the Slugs who lived there into an army of greedy, greenery-gobbling pests. Now, the Slugs are taking over the world, munching a path through Minutia and sliming up everything they touch! But a brave band of heroes is fighting back! Left behind when the Slugs captured their families, these unlikely champions are on an epic quest to save their parents and beat back the Slug advance. To get to Mount Boom, they’ll need to become… the Best Fiends.
The game is absolutely addicting. Clear the goals quickly and help them become the Best of Fiends! I may or may not have stayed up multiple times this week just to get to the next level.
