Game Cooks' New iOS Game Designed to Promote Peace in the Middle East

Game Cooks, the company established by the makers of Birdy Nam Nam, have announced the completion of their first game “Run For Peace,” which will be released end of June.

Set entirely in the Middle East, the linear run-and-jump game focuses around the character Salim, who spreads peace by running throughout the region, starting in Saudi Arabia and ending in Algeria. The game will be available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch at the end of June in English, French and Arabic.
