Feed the world! (and the baby…)

Liverpool, UK – 1 st August, 2013 – Playrise Digital Ltd, Playmob and SOS Children’s Villages are thrilled to announce a partnership for the release of Playrise Digital’s second title, ‘Baby Nom Nom’ for exclusively iPad and iPhone devices. Baby Nom Nom releases on the App Store today 1 st August, 2013 for £1.99/€2.49/$2.99. SOS Children’s Villages will get 15% of net revenue from every download of Baby Nom Nom , directly helping with the charity’s work in transforming the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children around the world.

Baby Nom Nom is a unique physics-based, puzzle game in which players must release a heap of rice from ever increasingly difficult mazes in order to feed a hungry baby. Players score higher points each level for collecting special items, finishing as quickly as possible and successfully collecting the maximum quantity of rice.

In this deceptively easy to pick up and play title, players must solve 36 deviously designed levels set across three beautifully illustrated worlds. Complete each puzzle against the clock by rotating mind-bending mazes, avoiding all the traps, freeing the rice and ultimately feeding the baby. Just don’t spill any rice or there’ll be big baby shaped trouble!

Baby Nom Nom features:

-         36 Unique and devious levels

-         3 Beautifully illustrated worlds

-         Insanely addictive gameplay

-         Game Centre Leaderboards

-         Game Centre iCloud sync saved games

-         2 Helpful Powerups

o Clockstopper Power-up gives you a little more time...or a higher score depending on your desire to top the leaderboards

o Superbowl Power-up makes that last second "oops" moment vanish... (for a while)

-         Lava traps, locks, teleports, fans, fruit and more....

-         1 VERY temperamental baby

“We are thrilled to announce our second title from Playrise Digital today” said Nick Burcombe, Playrise CEO . “Our partnership with SOS Children makes me doubly proud that we are able to help with the charity’s important work in supporting children and families.

About SOS Children’s Villages

SOS Children’s Villages is a global charity which provides orphans and vulnerable children with a stable and positive family life. The charity protects and improves the lives of children in 125 countries, working with communities to keep fragmenting families together, and where this is not possible, building new families for children at risk.

Working together with deprived communities, SOS Children’s Villages identifies needs and provides practical and emotional tools for parents and caregivers to prevent family breakdown. When children lose their families and have nothing and no one, the charity ensures that they can grow up in a safe environment by creating new families. Headed by SOS mothers, families live together in unique SOS Children’s Villages, which are located in the heart of communities. The charity establishes schools and medical centres to ensure that more children have the opportunity of an education and access to quality medical care. Every year, SOS Children’s Villages’ programmes reach over two million people.

As a global authority on alternative care, SOS Children’s Villages works in partnership with the United Nations, advocating for the rights of all children and contributing towards the development of key child protection policies.
