Games for Good: Get Water!

Before I take off for a weekend of PAX filled fun, I just wanted to take a second to tell you all about a very cool little iOS game that’s being released today called Get Water!

Get Water

Created by Montreal start up Decode Global, Get Water! is a touch based endless-runner style game all about a young Indian girl named Maya and the trials she has to face to get clean water for her family when all she really wants is to go to school.

If this sounds a little different than your average iOS game, it’s because Decode Global’s mandate is to create games that educate and encourage social change. It’s part of an ever growing subculture of Serious Games commonly referred to as Games for Good.

For more info on the game and Decode Global, please check out their website and take a look at the trailer below. Or, if you’re in the Montreal area, hit up the launch party tonight!
