Space Aids

Not as bad as it sounds


Space Aids is a space themed arcade game that forces the user to donate at least $0.05 (per in-game death) to charity. Currently, the only charity available for donation is "Aid for Aids International", but it would be easy to expand to more charities under the First Giving organization (because I am using their API).


I made this game to bridge the gap between game and reality and create more of a 3D and lifelike experience. I also found interesting this frame of mind where losing a game, while unfortunate for you, can benefit others. Perhaps this conflict will prevent the player from quitting the game out of anger, and motivate them to play longer.
