The late Dolphy’s family will lead the launch of a new game app featuring the late “Comedy King” as protagonist-hero. The Quizon family has partnered with iGen Technologies, a US-based software product development and consulting services company (with an office in the Philippines), in developing the game “in memory of Dolphy.”

 

The downloadable game titled “Dolphy Clean Up,” which features a character patterned after the looks and demeanor of the iconic funny man, is described by its creators as both “funny and educational.” According to Eric Quizon,  “Dolphy Clean Up” aims to educate people especially children on the importance of trash segregation and proper disposal.

It will be available initially in the App Store for iPads (starting today, Dec. 15), and very soon for iPhones. It is expected to be purchasable in Goggle Play for Android mobile devices in early 2014. The Quizon family will also launch the game app in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The Quizons gave life to the concept through Dolphy Aid Para sa Pinoy Foundation, Inc. which channels the late actor’s advocacies, particularly his care for the environment and safety of the common tao. The same foundation was behind the success of “Dolphy Alay Tawa,” a fundraising tribute and benefit concert held last year, a few months after the passing of the Comedy King.

On that note, Epy Quizon stated “A certain percentage of the download proceeds will be directed to efforts being made to rehabilitate and reconstruct communities in the Visayan region affected by ‘Yolanda.’” Manila Bulletin
