Hudson's promising Lost in Shadow (A Shadow's Tale in Europe) may have been delayed until 2011 but there's no need to cry about it: it's all for a good cause, in fact.
Every "Like" of the game's official Facebook page between August 30th and 4pm PST today will raise 10 cents for Child's Play, leaving you with just a few hours to log on and use your thumbs for good.
HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT CASTS A LIGHT TO HELP CHILDREN WITH “SHADOWS TO LIGHT” FACEBOOK EVENT, BENEFITTING CHILD’S PLAY CHARITY
Hudson to Donate to Child’s Play Charity for Each Person to “Like” Lost in Shadow’s Facebook Page and Change Profile Picture
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Aug. 30, 2010 – Beginning August 30, Hudson Entertainment will ask gamers and non-gamers alike to make a difference in a young child’s life. For every person who ‘Likes’ the Lost In Shadow page (www.facebook.com/lostinshadow) Hudson will donate 10 cents to Child’s Play, a community-based charity with its roots in the gaming industry, founded by the creators of Penny-Arcade.com. For those who want to donate more; by changing their profile picture to a picture of a shadow, any shadow, Hudson will jump up the amount to a $1 donation. All ‘Likes’ and Shadow Profile Pictures will be counted on the Lost In Shadow page at the end of Shadows to Light Day, Sept 7th, 2010.
Lost in Shadow follows a shadow of a boy as he attempts to climb around and up a mystical tower. Along the way, players must solve mysteries, puzzles and fight off enemies that try to impede the boy’s progress. The “Shadows to Light” event aims to help cast light in a young child’s life by contributing to the donations of toys, games, books, and monetary contributions for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America.
"Child's Play is excited about Shadows To Light Day and the opportunity it's creating for children across the nation," said Kristin Lindsay, Foundation Coordinator for Child’s Play. “We invite the vibrant gaming community to join in, log onto Facebook, and help us make a difference!”
Participants can also “follow” Hudson on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hudsonent for updates on the event and game. Be sure to stop by Hudson’s booth at PAX from September 3 – 5, located at booth #842 for a chance to play Lost in Shadow!
Lost in Shadow will be released in North America on Jan. 4, 2011 for WiiTM. For more information on Lost in Shadow, please visit www.lostinshadow.com.
