    Troublemaker Technologies is excited to announce the launch of Saviors, an iPhone game developed by 16-year-old Skylar Thomas of Carmel. Featuring impeccable design and gameplay, “Saviors” is built to inspire social change and consciousness with regards to factory farming practices in the food industry. The game is endorsed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the bestselling novels “Eating Animals” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Half of the proceeds from in-app purchases go towards PETA programs. The official launch date for Saviors is February 1, 2016.

    Skylar Thomas, an ardent animal activist since age 6, states: “It is important to realize that being aware of the abuses that animals suffer at the hands of the food industry is the first step towards embracing a cruelty-free lifestyle and moreover creating change.”

    saviors skylar Skylar Thomas is the 16-year-old CEO of TroubleMaker Technologies, working to change the world out of his home office in Carmel, California. Skylar was drawn to the world of technology at age 11 after creating an eco-friendly version of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak’s high school science fair project and has been fusing imagination with technology ever since.In a cute and colorful approach to promoting animal rights, Saviors places the player in the position of an “animal savior” who runs through a factory farm corridor and is awarded points by saving animals from slaughter and throwing balls of “education paint” at factory “employees” that represent multinational corporate fast-food restaurants. Saviors is available for free download on Apple’s app store at: https://appsto.re/us/d3k98.i
