Play Rescue offers exclusive game development crowdfunding that aids rescue efforts.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark 12th December 2015 – Nikolai Ankergren, a young entrepreneur and game developer, invites you to check out his new offering at This innovative crowdfunding site supports charity efforts by providing indie game developers with exclusive, upfront publicity at the same time.

Nikolai’s parents opened Odsherred Zoo Rescue in Asnæs 20 years ago, the first rescue center in Denmark for exotic animals; and six months ago his father succumbed to cancer. Immersed in his own development company, creating and selling games, Nikolai returned home to assist with zoo operations, forfeiting the progress of his company.

“After my dad died of cancer, finishing his life work of establishing the rescue zoo prevailed as the clear goal in my life,” shares Nikolai. “When I considered the idea of creating a game that would benefit the zoo, I was thrilled. Then I further realized that I could expand this charitable giving opportunity to other indie developers! What could be better?”

To raise crucial funds for Odsherred Zoo, Nikolai has begun developing two separate games; together they tell the amazing story of his father and the zoo. To raise funds for completing and distributing these games, he explored popular crowdfunding sites. But he discovered that the large number and wide variety of projects on these sites diminished the potential for exposure to major financiers. So he launched to increase visibility exclusively for indie game projects like his own.

All proceeds from the sale of these games will support the operations of the Zoo. For Nikolai, this charitable sponsorship opportunity is the primary benefit of the new site. But the chance for indie game developers to receive increased publicity is also a premium perk.
