Brightlove

Brightlove is a 2D platforming runner that encourages players to be kind and to take action, rather than be mere bystanders. A refreshing contrast to the violence that often permeates mobile games, Brightlove encourages positive actions and rewards kindness. Featured on Forbes, Google Play, and Buzzfeed.

Description

You play as Cece, a kind blob who hopes to spread love and kindness to her world. In the first level, players start off in a trash-filled, dark world. In each level, there is a positive word that Cece must uncover. During the level, Cece’s mission is to collect the gold letters scattered throughout her world and later unscramble the letters to spell out the positive word. But navigating Cece’s world and collecting the gold letters come with challenges. Evil monsters lurk in the dark, exuding negativity, hurting other creatures, and destructing the environment. When players encounter an evil monster, they must channel positivity as a response to the monster’s negativity by spraying the evil monster with love potion. Meanwhile, hurt creatures lay helpless in the dark world, and Cece must take action to help these creatures. As Cece unlocks positive words and progresses through the game, Cece’s world becomes more and more beautiful.
