Collin Caneva accepts that video games are a staple in many kids’ lives nowadays. But just because they spend hours a day clicking away in front of a screen doesn’t mean the time they spend in a virtual world needs to go to waste.

Enter Kid Command, the first product developed by Caneva’s game studio, Green Bein’ Productions.

Similar to popular online games such as World of Warcraft or Everquest, Kid Command immerses players in a vast digital world, challenging them to undertake quests and solve problems.

But Kid Command is a game with a cause. Targeted toward a young audience, the game presents an environmentally positive message to kids, encouraging them to help make the real world a better place.

Rather than slaying goblins and killing dragons, players in Kid Command help heal a world tainted by corrupt energy called ecnarongi (ignorance spelled backward), which transforms lovable wildlife into dangerous fiends.

Check out the video below to hear what Caneva has to say about running a fledgling game studio!
