Aksys Games is pleased to announce that the company has pledged to donate $10,000 of profits from the Little Dragons Café game to the Extra Life campaign that raises funds for Children’s Miracle Network® hospitals across North America. Created by renowned designer Yasuhiro Wada, Little Dragons Café is a unique and imaginative game in which players manage a café, explore their world, and raise their very own dragon. The game launched last month for the Nintendo Switch™ and the PlayStation®4 system.
“In Little Dragons Café, the twins are working with a ragtag group of friends to save their mother from a mysterious illness,” said Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games. “We wanted to partner with Extra Life because their campaign to mobilize the gaming industry to work together has raised millions of dollars in the past 10 years for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and helped to heal thousands of kids.”
The company also announced that the Little Dragons Café augmented reality promo app has also been updated with new content. Players can now take selfies with the animated dragon, and more surprises are coming soon. The AR app is available now for free at the App Store and Google Play.
