I “Niko” was enjoying a promising early-career developing games while my parents ran Odsherred Zoo Rescue – a unique charity in Denmark that helps rescue animals who’ve suffered, live full and rewarding lives. We are actualy the very first zoo and rescue center for exotic animals in Denmark.
The rescue zoo welcomes exotic animals who have suffered, whether from medcial or cosmetic testing, abuse, or the illegal pet trade, and unfortunately can never be released into the wild. We are not a transit place, meaning we give them a staying home.
We lost my father a few years ago due to cancer, and I immediately dropped everything and returned home to help my mother at the rescue zoo.
But that isn’t the end of the story.
I combined my passion for game development with the rescue zoo, and came up with the idea for a new company called Play Rescue.
We develop games, and live stream our daily work with the rescue animals in the rescue zoo. The we donate 100% of the profit that Play Rescue earns into helping the rescue animals.
Running Odsherred Zoo Rescue costs nearly $45,000USD a month just to feed the animals, with over 600 animal residents to care for. To raise extra funds for this worthy cause, Nikolai dreamed up Rescue Wars Online (RWO) – a massively multiplayer online game – to put his development skills to work for the rescue zoo.
Rescue Wars Online is fun, inclusive, and family-friendly game currently under development by Play Rescue.
Play Rescue’s impressive online following and my recent appearances across the international media show that the story behind Rescue Wars Online is connecting with people.
It’s my ambition to use the success of Play Rescue to support animal welfare globally, expanding the RWO in-game universe to include new worlds themed around other charities in-line with the Odsherred Zoo Rescue mission in the future.
This makes RWO the perfect vehicle to engage with a young, loyal, and growing community of socially conscious gamers.
If you agree that this cause is worth supporting, we hope you’ll decide to get on-board and help us protect vulnerable creatures however you can. The Play Rescue adventure is only just beginning, and you can still be part something worthwhile (and enormously entertaining)!
