ADDITIONAL INFO: We are working on a mobile game called "iBeg", which simulates the life of a homeless person living on the streets of Vancouver, BC. Players step into the shoes of a homeless person in order to see the harsh realities and difficult circumstances that homeless people deal with on a day-to-day basis. This is a low budget project, being made by a very small team, and we also plan to donate a significant amount of the proceeds from the game towards charitable organizations in Vancouver that help the homeless.
