'Wavey The Rocket' (ALL) Teams With War Child UK For "You Play, We Pay" Charity Event

Wavey The Rocket is a 3D side-scrolling arcade game that merges precision movement with a 90s gaming aesthetic, all set to some seriously funky hip hop.

Prepare to ride the waves and save the cosmos in Wavey The Rocket!

Play as Wavey, the chillest sentient rocket who’s on a journey through the most dangerous and bizarre reaches of the universe to battle against his ultimate foe and the worst corporation this side of the galaxy, Evil².

After committing the most atrocious offence the universe has ever witnessed, removing the fizz from Wavey’s favourite soda, Evil² shows it’s true corporate agenda by threatening to destroy the Moon; Wavey’s mentor and best friend.

Utilize Wavey’s unique movement style to reach the end of tricky and puzzling levels, all handcrafted to test your skills and your score multiplier. Make sure you grab every Gem and Whirl in each level to unlock Grandmaster Mode!

Be absorbed into Wavey’s wild world with fully detailed 3D levels, ranging from the Galactic Tombs to the beautiful neon lit Arcade City, while relaxing to a funky hip hop inspired soundtrack like you’ve never heard before.

UpperRoom Games announce a partnership with War Child, a charity which works towards a world in which no child’s life is torn apart by war, to provide valuable support during the COVID crisis in form of a charity stream beginning on 7th May 2020.

UpperRoom Games are asking for one hour of a streamer’s time to play Wavey The Rocket when it releases on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer or Steam Stream. In exchange, UpperRoom Games is donating £2 for every hour played, to a total sum of 2500 hours. This also applies to concurrent hours played, meaning any influencer that decides to stream for 10 hours, UpperRoom will donate £20 to the pot.

“We’re extremely proud and humbled to be working alongside a charity such as War Child”, said Torquil Trapp, Designer at UpperRoom Games. “Being able to not only provide an excellent challenge to our community, but to also raise funds for a wonderful charity really." 

“War Child UK is an international children’s charity that supports children affected by war across the globe. We protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children who have been displaced or had their lives severely disrupted by ongoing conflict” said Alex Brew, Gaming Partnerships and Events Exec. “War Child have been working with the games industry for over 10 years to raise money and awareness for the cause and are proud to partner with UpperRoom Games on the release of Wavey the Rocket. The money raised from this launch event will go towards supporting children’s education, and recovery  from war as well as our work responding to the COVID-19 crisis.”
