The Oasis Awaits! Wildmender is Now Available on Steam, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S
Wildmender, a game about bringing a deserted world back to life, has now launched on Steam, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The goal is to nurture your own piece of paradise – transforming a vast desert that hides many mysteries – and protect your garden from the fierce forces of nature.
Muse Games has partnered with us to publish this exciting game. If you have played games like Guns of Icarus and Embr, you’re already familiar with Muse Games, the studio based in New York.
In Wildmender game, explore the vast desert alone or with friends. Collect plants and craft tools to shape the earth and delve into the mysteries and magic of a fallen civilisation. Befriend animals, spirits, and seek out the gods to help you defend the land from the vicious wraiths who want to corrupt it. It’s up to you to save the world, one seed at a time.
The game also has a vital message and reflects the real world problems faced by our own planet. That brings us to another exciting part of the launch – collaborations with two vital non-profit organisations.
The first is the Rainforest Alliance. They are an organisation dedicated to promoting biodiversity, conservation and sustainable living. The partnership aims to engage and educate players about their impact on the environment and the role they could play in saving it.
The Rainforest Alliance will benefit from the relationship with Wildmender, its developer Muse Games and publisher Kwalee through fundraising and increased exposure to the players of the game. One of the most fun parts of the campaign is the must-have frog hat that’s available as DLC on Steam.
The second partnership is between Muse Games and the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a global non-profit organisation that helps people affected by humanitarian crises – including the climate crisis.
As part of this collaboration, Wildmender game will also launch with an IRC branded hat. Find out more about the mission of the organisation and how donations from this item will support its mission to help restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster.
We’re so excited to see you all shape the beautiful world of this game, craft your own garden and nurture your plants. We love the game’s vibrant colours, sweeping soundtrack and we hope you explore it with as much wonder as we’ve felt in our time playing the game.
Thanks for joining me again for a further look into User Acquisition - make sure you are all caught up by reading part one of this series. If you have, then let’s jump straight in. I believe it's essential to begin this article by acknowledging the difficulty of creative production and expressing my appreciation for the teams working in this field.
In mobile gaming, staying on top of User Acquisition (UA) is no easy task, as we step into 2023, it's evident that the game has changed. The major players in the games industry, such as Kwalee, have witnessed a significant decrease in the number of game launches in the market, especially when compared to two years ago. John Wright, Vice President of Mobile Publishing, talks us through the key contributors and advice for keeping up with UA trends.
The International Rescue Committee (IRC), a global non-profit organization that helps people affected by humanitarian crises – including the climate crisis, and Muse Games, the developer of upcoming PC and Console title ‘Wildmender’, are pleased to announce a strategic collaboration seeking to leverage the power of gaming for a greater cause.
