American High Schooler Creates Mobile Game to Prevent Animal Cruelty

17 year old Skylar Thomas from the Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut has developed a mobile game with the help of peta2, the youth division of PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This mobile game is named Paintball Hero as iis going to be aimed at young adults and teens in order to raise awareness about the issue of animal cruelty. The game is now available free but has several in-game mechanics that will help raise funds for PETA's cause.

The game provides players with the chance to save animals in three different settings, including a farm, a circus and a rainforest. Thomas took about 14 months to complete the project which has the players flinging educational paintballs at corporate bigwigs in order to get them to release captive animals.


The animals you save will follow you and your role in the game is to collect all the animals available. The amazing thing about the game is that Thomas is entirely self taught and learnt most of his trade on the internet.

The game is now available on both Google Play and the App Store for free, as you can find it as long as you search for 'Paintball Hero'.
