Save the Park is a collaborative endless runner game that aims to inspire players to volunteer and make a difference at the National Park Service’s 400 national parks, monuments, and historic sites in all 50 U.S. states.
Developed by Schell Games, Save the Park features four characters who accomplish volunteer tasks, allowing players to virtually experience the activities that support parks and the critical caretaking role volunteers play. With multiple prompts to take action and to find volunteer opportunities, the game mobilized a new generation of volunteers to preserve and revitalize America’s treasured national parks.
The game was Awarded Silver at the International Serious Play Awards in 2016. Throughout the launch of the game, 19% of players were converted to volunteers, and $16,000 was raised in donations to National Parks Services.
G4C executive produced, selected developers, and oversaw all aspects of development.
