You have to love Child's Play and Hudson for teaming up for the charity with a simple yet extremely awesome Facebook idea YOU can help with. How? Just boogie on over to the official Lost In Shadow Facebook page and "Like" the game. What is Lost in Shadow, you ask? Heck, it's looking like an amazing, ethereal Wii adventure like no other on the console, so you also get a chance to find out more about it (bonus!).
Once you "Like" the game page, Hudson will donate ten cents to Child's Play - now how great is that? Want to contribute even more? Well, just change your profile pic on Facebook to a shadow of its former self (any shadow will do) and Hudson will up that contribution to a dollar.
I'm off to snap a new pic now. So far the LOS page has a mere 58 likes... let's change that in a BIG way, OK? The event ends on September 7, 2010, so don't wait! By the way, Lost in Shadow is set to hit retail on January 4, 2011 - back with more on the game shortly. The press release is below le jump if you want to check it out.
HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT CASTS A LIGHT TO HELP CHILDREN WITH
“SHADOWS TO LIGHT” FACEBOOK EVENT, BENEFITING CHILD’S PLAY CHARITY
Hudson to Donate to Child’s Play Charity for Each Person to “Like” Lost in Shadow’s Facebook Page and Change Profile Picture
Beginning Aug. 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 for updates on the event and game. Be sure to stop by Hudson’s booth at PAX from Sept. 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 Wii. Click HERE for more information on the game.
