The Tuttles is now available as a PC/Mac hybrid at retailers across the country. Additionally, The Tuttles is available as a download for the PC and Mac, and there are also Flash, widget and Facebook applications. Fifty percent of the retail proceeds from game sales and 75 percent of the proceeds from the downloads at www.tuttlesfamilygame.com go to Starlight.
Starlight helps seriously ill children and their families cope with pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. Its programs include mobile entertainment units and laptop computers for hospitalized children, fun family events that take children and families away from medical treatments, a social network for teens with serious medical conditions and much, much more.
Kicked off as a fundraising concept by Starlight, many stars have gotten involved in the game. Actors William Shatner, Bob Saget, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ashley Tisdale, Dominic Scott Kay, Dave Thomas and Dave Coulier lent their voices to The Tuttles, a classic side-scrolling platformer game for all ages. The story line, developed by Animax Entertainment, follows a vacationing family as they travel by flying mini-van through desert, jungle and even underwater, avoiding obstacles and collecting goodies along the way to the Alamo.
"The Tuttles is a fun game for all ages. It's an easy choice for people to support the game because a significant portion of all purchases goes directly to brightening the lives of ill children," said Legacy's CEO Ariella Lehrer. "We hope our Facebook contest gets more people talking about The Tuttles and helps to support a charity that is really making a difference to millions of children and their families."
Participants of the Facebook contest must:
• Add The Tuttles Sweepstakes Facebook application to their profile at http://apps.facebook.com/
• Answer questions about the game and invite "friends" in their Facebook social network to add the application
• The participant will receive one entry when they submit their answers and an additional entry for every friend they invite that accepts and downloads The Tuttles Sweepstakes Facebook application.
• Camera winners will be randomly drawn from all entries received by May 20, 2008.
