Enjoy the June Edition of the Kolibri Games Newsletter. This is where we review the events of the past weeks and keep you updated on recent company and product milestones.
This month offered a lot of opportunities for reflection. We took the international wave of support for the Black Lives Matter and related movements as a call to ourselves to think about how we as a company can take a stronger stand against racism, hatred and discrimination. In addition, this month’s Pride Month celebrations gave us an impulse to further diversity and inclusion at our company.
Here at Kolibri Games, we established a donation drive that will run throughout the rest of the year, to support national organizations that fight against racism and discrimination in Germany.
If you or your team would like to become active yourselves but don’t know where to start, we have compiled a list of books that have helped us wrap our head around issues relating to discrimination, diversity and inclusion throughout the past month. Find the list at the bottom of this newsletter.
We believe that adding a quantitative component to our decision-making processes will help us make the game even better and we are becoming even more player-centric, by further improving our game with information on the behavior of the millions of players who don’t directly reach out to us with feedback.
This month, our Idle Miner Tycoon Team worked hard on updates to the Mainland, a new Adventure Draw feature that allows players to win powerful prizes and implementing the new soccer-themed season: the Champion Season.
