PITTSBURGH, PA – Oct. 9, 2020 – Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana and GDEX are teaming up for a charity campaign with Mega Cat Studios as part of the launch for the new free Bite the Bullet DLC. Bite the Bullet is a run, gun, and eat where every enemy is edible, and your dietary choices drive your character’s development, from skill trees to crafting. In the past, Mega Cat Studios has used their games and platforms to raise funds for charitable organizations like the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and Take This.

 

With Bite the Bullet’s emphasis on food and over-the-top eating, the team at Mega Cat wanted to extend the conversation around eating into the real-world and highlight the fact that hunger affects families worldwide. By using the game launch to draw attention to Make-A-Wish’s mission, they hope that their efforts will inspire gamers to make a difference in the lives of children as well.

 

The latest from indie developer Mega Cat Studios, Bite the Bullet builds on a foundation of retro run & gun gameplay with a world full of edible enemies and dietary crossroads. What you eat and how much you eat directly influence your character development and crafting, taking you down the path of four different character classes and through a dizzying arsenal of weapon variations—assault rifles, shotguns, rocket launchers, and critter cannons.

 

“The run & gun genre is full of legendary titles, and we wanted to honor that classic gameplay with a dish that feels familiar but loaded with fresh flavors,” James Deighan, Mega Cat Studios founder, says. “Bite the Bullet is a frenetic eating experience, putting the player in intense firefights and between buffet lines of zombie meat and mutant plants.”

 

Known for their world-renowned nonprofit efforts, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana is diving deeper with charity streaming during COVID-19. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Hundreds of wishes have been impacted by the pandemic, yet Make-A-Wish remains committed in its vision to grant every eligible child with a critical illness the transformative hope a fulfilled wish brings. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Mega Cat and GDEX to have fun, create impact, and grant more wishes for local children.” Kendall Glasser, Advancement Associate who’s leading the charge with this partnership.
