Tarsier A CUTE! Now Available on Google Play

Tarsier A CUTE!

Tarsier A CUTE!, a mobile game released by a budding game producer from Bohol, is now available for download on Google Play.

This new casual puzzle game was conceptualized during the two-day Game Development workshop spearheaded by the Bohol ICT Council (BICTC), Bohol Investment Promotion Center (BIPC), and Techtalks.ph Bohol last June 17 and 18, 2017. In collaboration with the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary, Game Development instructors Benjamin Skelton and Maryel Cerio polished the game.

Tarsier A CUTE!’s gameplay goes around the concept of conservation of the endangered primate – the Philippine Tarsier. With the game’s male tarsier keeping himself away from danger to reach the female and produce a baby, Tarsier A CUTE! aims to increase the tarsier population. The scoring revolves around the count of babies as well as the number of critters that can be viewed jumping around in the title screen.

The Game can be downloaded free from Google Play for Android and will be available for the iPhone sometime in August. Half of the in-app purchases of the Tarsier A CUTE! mobile game will be given to the Philippine Tarsier Foundation Inc which runs an eight-hectare sanctuary in Corella, Bohol.
