Nerdy Pup Games announces Space Princess charity drive
Indie publisher to fund new board game as charity drive for bipolar awareness
Perrysburg, OH – January 16, 2018. Today Nerdy Pup Games announced the release of its first board game, Space Princess, as a charity drive for the International Bipolar Foundation, launching on IndieGoGo in March 2018. The game honors the memory of the late actor, writer, and icon Carrie Fisher, who was a vocal advocate for mental health awareness. Proceeds from the drive will be donated to the International Bipolar Foundation, a leading organization for bipolar disorder awareness around the world and a cause supported by Fisher.
Space Princess is an elegant strategy game for two, set in a retro sci-fi universe. One player takes on the role of the Space Princess, using clever timing and a variety of action cards to escape the board. The other player plays the Dark Zealot, coordinating a team of trooper pawns and special powers to capture the princess before she escapes.
“The game was designed out of love for a great hero we lost last year,” said Mike Addison, designer of the game. “I hope that by sharing it with fans of board games and sci-fi, we can send some good out into the world together.”
Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that affects 5.6 million adults in the United States, and an estimated 51 million worldwide. Nerdy Pup Games hopes that the campaign for Space Princess will promote awareness and inspire others to help support individuals and families whose lives are affected by the condition.
