News culture Ori is committed to protecting the forests with Rainforest Trust
IAM8BIT, Moon Studios, Skybound Games and Just For Games have signed a partnership with the Rainforest Trust, a Virginia-based organization that helps protect tropical habitats.
The production company IAM8BIT is committed to a total donation of $ 58,000 Americans from the Rainforest Trust support the protection of endangered tropical forests. A theme that is directly reminiscent of the first part of Ori and the blind forest, while the hero has to muster his courage to save the endangered Nibel forest.
The sum was raised in part thanks to sales on the IAM8BIT and Just for Games websites to mark the launch of Ori and Will of the Wisps on Nintendo Switch. According to the French retailer’s press release, “more than 11,735 hectares of tropical habitats, roughly one and a half times the size of the Brocéliande forest or 14 times the area of the Palace of Versailles
Ori and the Will of the Wisps for Nintendo Switch is iam8bit’s very first game as publisher. We thought the best way to spend the game’s marketing budget would be to make a positive impact by getting things done. While we worked with Moon Studios to bring the Ori series to Nintendo Switch, we were impressed with their commitment to showcasing nature as a living, breathing entity worth protecting. Following their example, we wanted to be committed to protecting nature and are happy to be able to do this by working with the wonderful people of the Rainforest Trust. Jon M. Gibson and Amanda White, co-owners of iam8bit, press release.
