RocketOwl, an Ottawa-based startup game developer, has launched GreenSpace, an "eco-conscious social game." Currently playable for free on Facebook, with upcoming releases on Google's Android platform and Apple's iOS platform, GreenSpace is set in the distant future and sees users explore and discover the world while engaging with other players. Over time, players clean up trash to unveil a beautiful green utopia—"the future is tidy," the game's slogan reads.
“With GreenSpace, we set out to bring the best of competitive play to audiences around the world in a fun and social way,” said Graeme Barlow, CEO. “We want to provide a meaningful experience to all of our players through gaming."
RocketOwl, founded in 2010, employs "sophisticated graphics and an engaging storyline" to make it "the ultimate game for both frequent and casual gamers." Since it entered public beta in August, GreenSpace has been fine-tuned by its developers based on player feedback.
“We’ve been working with players over the past few months to fine-tune the game,” said Barlow. “Now that GreenSpace is coming out of beta, the entire team is really excited to see the public reception of the launch. We could not be happier with the final product and hope that you enjoy playing it as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.”
