ABOUT THE GAME
Castle on the Coast is a 3D platformer with classical collectathon mechanics and George the Giraffe as the protagonist.

Seamlessly wander from level to level with no loading screens in a large, interconnected world allowing you to roam around and discover all secrets hidden within freely! Play solo, or invite friends to join you in co-op mode!
VALLEY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
George the Giraffe is the official mascot of Valley Children’s Hospital in California. George has symbolized the love and care found at Valley Children’s there for nearly seven decades. “Adopted” as the hospital’s mascot by its five founding mothers, a giraffe was chosen because they have the largest heart of any land mammal. And that heart is present in the care provided at Valley Children’s every single day. Now, thanks to the cooperation between Valley Children’s, Big Heart Productions, and Klabater, the beloved giraffe will debut in a video game!
CYBER MONDAY CAMPAIGN FOR KIDS
A pre-order purchase will be available at a 10% discount on Cyber Monday, and a portion of the revenue will support the programs at Valley Children’s Hospital, which provides Central California’s only high-quality, comprehensive care exclusively for children, from before birth to young adulthood.
“Valley Children’s is driven by preserving the joy of childhood for every patient we are privileged to care for. Whether it is a book featuring our beloved mascot, George, or a plush animal in his likeness, we are grateful for the chance to share that love and joy with our families. This video game – the first of its kind by a children’s hospital in the country – is another way we can bring some fun into the kids’ lives we see. And now kids around the world may also help George navigate the journey through the ‘Castle on the Coast.” says Todd Suntrapak, President and CEO of Valley Children’s Healthcare.
“We were immediately drawn to this project the very day the developer introduced us to the whole idea. Not only are we proud to support Valley Children’s, but we also find Castle on the Coast a hilarious and dynamic platformer, which seems perfect for children, and their parents!” – says Michal Gembicki, Joint-CEO in Klabater.
