Hospitopia on Facebook will give players a cause to 'Share' [Interview]


While social game developers like Zynga have been leveraging their millions of fans to contribute to noble causes, it's only recently that games devoted entirely to a cause have sprouted up. Hospitopia by CausePlay, has teamed up with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) nationwide to contribute 10 percent of all revenue brought in by the game to its over 170 hospitals.

We chatted with founding partner and President of CausePlay Jonas Hudson, Aubrey Cichelli, VP of Communications at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Joe Mason, Senior Vice President of Consumer Services for Intersections Inc. (a marketing partner with CausePlay) about how CausePlay plans to give players a cause to share their social gaming experience.
