As you may be aware the problem of gambling being forced onto kids in the form of loot boxes has now got a lot of attention to the point that various Governments have now stepped in and EA have been forced to remove this from their latest game StarWars BatleFront 2. But the UK is still to act...
Please sign this petition to get them to take action as others have:
Please read our post here:
An exert from this is as follows:
" We may even remove ALL in-game purchases if we can successfully secure alternative funding to continue its development... As has been made clear previously, we are not interested in making money, our sole purpose is to help create a better world, but we do need money to fund the development of Our World and others apps & games.
Other ways we plan to monetize Our World is for businesses to sponsor it so some items in the game will have their name such as the Samsung Shield, etc. Also businesses can rent virtual space to build virtual shops, etc in the game.
But we are still considering whether sponsors can also advertise via notice boards, etc since we do not want to push advertising on people. It is a fine balance we are continuously reviewing... At the moment we are hoping we can avoid in-game advertising...
We will also hope that donations can help fund development.
Please help NOW by donating below on our Crowd Funding page:
Finally Our World is Open Source so we hope many developers would want to contribute for free especially since it is for such a good cause...
As always we are very open to your suggestions so please do get in contact on firstname.lastname@example.org"
So we are interested in hearing your views and suggestions on best ways to make Our World sustainable...
Please comment below, we would LOVE to hear from you! :)
The Our World Team.
