Indie Game Studio Uses Store Page to Raise Awareness of the Endangered Black-Footed Ferret

Watch a live 24/7 broadcast of cute black-footed ferrets on Steam
RALEIGH, N.C. - Nov. 22, 2019 - PRLog -- Today, Noble Robot, an indie game development studio currently working on a ferret mischief game called Widget Satchel, announced that they would be re-streaming a live broadcast of the black-footed ferret until the release of the game later this year. Run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the black-footed ferret cam captures a real-time feed of North America's most endangered mammal that, at one point, was thought to be extinct.

Regarding the idea behind re-broadcasting the black-footed ferret cam, Noble Robot Director Mark LaCroix said, "You play as a ferret in our game, and we did a lot of research so Sprocket would look and feel the right amount of silly. But at first we were only looking at domesticated ferrets, so when we learned about the conversation efforts to protect the seriously threatened black-footed ferret, we thought we could do something a little less silly to support them."

The broadcast is currently live on the Widget Satchel Steam store page at More live ferret cams are available on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website at

Donations can be made to support black-footed ferret recovery through the American Ferret Association at
