We want people to stop eating unhealthy! Today millions of people die because of preventable diseases caused by unhealthy food choices. We can stop that! You just need a little willpower and you can make those necessary changes to your eating habits. We hope you'll put down that french fries and opt for an apple instead
"I came across the so called 'advergames', I prefer to say- 'evil games'. Evil games are videogames that are developed by big fast food companies to brain wash little children into liking their junk-food. Studies have shown that these games increase children's consumption of junk-food by 56%. This is an alarming statistic. You believe it or not, but as you read this webpage, a child dies due to child obesity because of the landscape of food we've built around them. Gaming is quite a powerful tool, and I wanted to use this incredibely powerful tool to make a change in this world. Save these innocent children's lives and protect the Earth from deadly obesity crisis. Now, I know that playing health-promoting videogames most certainly won't bring down child obesity dramatically but it will help. The study conducted by the Yale University also showed that children who played games that promote healthy eating ate less junk food. There are thousands of games built by junk-food companies, wouldn't it be really nice if health-promoting games come out more often?" - Shivam Sai Gupta (Developer)
This game required a lot of time, effort and money. We seek to recuperate atleast some of it by offering in-app purchases and non-annoying ads. We put user-experience above ads and hence there are no hovering banner ads; they will only appear after you finish playing for a few times.
