About Us

Our Mission and Vision

Great Games, Great Causes.

We are a video games publisher and we place an emphasis on the creation point where great games design meets great causes.

To further this aim, we’ve incorporated as a Public Benefit Company (P.B.C.)

Our P.B.C. mission is to: “To harness the power of philanthropy through interactive experiences.”

We achieve this by developing subtle and thought-provoking gameplay within our video games which address social issues or the existential climate threat facing our planet. Our further aim is to offset a portion of our revenue to support third-party companies who are making our world a better place.

A simple idea: Great Games, Great Causes.

Who is working with One Earth Rising?

We currently work across three different areas.

Social cause companies - we develop gameplay and narratives built around social causes or the communication of a particular climate change issues.

Cause marketing - we collaborate with brands who are developing their own response to sustainable development, either as a matched partner to a Social Causes Company, or reflecting gameplay of the brands own content or causes marketing objectives within our video games.

Our own IP - we develop and create our own range of products and video games e.g. Paraiso Island.
