SAFARI RESCUE Released

Safari Rescue

In the midst of prepping next month’s big Moonlighters news, we took a little break to make a little game that you can play now – SAFARI RESCUE – free on the App Store!

Has a game ever made you cry, or scream in joy, or feel the warmth of a kindly god? Which would you describe as more emotional, your last mobile game or the birth of your first child? At game studio Rad Dragon, we ask these questions each day, and find games coming up short time and time again. Will the interactive medium ever match the emotional intensity of film, fine art, and sculpture?

Just as our artistic soul-searching reached the peak of desperation, we found the answer where it must always lie: in the heart of a child. Would you believe us if we told you SAFARI RESCUE, a game ostensibly made by a mere babe, is the very evolution — nay, transcendence — of games into something… greater?

SAFARI RESCUE will make you weep tears of gold. It will rip out your heart and launch it into the sky, where it will join your spirit in eternal frolics. It will see your every moment suspended as thick drops of savory honey, electrify you with the thrill of life itself, and shrink all the world’s oceans to a melody in your step.

None of those are metaphors.

SAFARI RESCUE simply must be experienced to be understood. We are doing everything in our power as a small indie game studio to bring this masterpiece to the deserving masses. As such, it is free. Free to download; free to take its place in the empyrean echelon of cultural champions.

SAFARI RESCUE is out now on the App Store for free. Please visit http://safarirescue.tumblr.com for more information and also nature facts.
