HOORAY!!!! We have just gone OVER $4,000!!!! That is so cool! What a HUGE 24 hours we have just had thanks to all your sharing and backing our idea. 

We have overwhelmingly positive responses from parents who have downloaded our game "Sharks in the Park" and watched their kids have fun running around, playing it! This morning we received an email from a trust who was very excited about our work. They told us they saw our app on TV3 News, downloaded it and had a lot of fun running around outside this morning. For them the potential to connect kids with nature was obvious and so we are hoping to set them up as another pilot digital playground next. 

Amie and Mathieu have been working to improve the current app and make it more user friendly. Here are few snapshots from this morning.

Today is a crazy day because we are racing around getting everything ready for the digital playground launch on Monday in Wellington and replying to messages about our app. It's so much fun though when you hear positive responses, watch the download numbers go up and read the amazing comments parents are leaving on our Kickstarter. That's when we feel it's been all worth it! Especially how many parents are reporting our app turns out to be a social game. That's just fantastic! 

If you haven't played yet, give it go! Look for "Sharks in the Park Geo AR Games" and find your nearest big flat park to play! Take some snapshots with the camera button and send them through! We'd love to see where you play and hear back how you go ;) 

Keep sharing please and let everyone know about our app please. We want to transfer the way we do mobile gaming into a healthier version. 

Thanks, Mel
