Note: This article is brought to you in partnership with My Lovely Planet.

A promising start-up in the world of video games

My Lovely Planet is a mobile free-to-play game to be launched in 2021 by a French startup of the same name. At the helm is Clément Le Bras, a 39-year-old Mines Paristech engineer and seasoned entrepreneur, who has enlisted the services of 12 seasoned experts.

They include such luminaries as the art director and game designer of the famous Candy Crush Saga. The project has already attracted the interest of industry giants Ubisoft and Unity, which are sponsoring the project.

A Fun gameplay to raise ecological awareness

My Lovely Planet offers a free experience on iOS and Android, inviting players to create their own island paradise, inspired by the style of Animal Crossing. The major innovation lies in the fact that every action taken by players has a tangible, measurable impact on the environment.

Whether it’s planting a tree or cleaning up litter on their virtual island, players trigger funding for equivalent ecological initiatives in the real world. This unique approach strengthens the link between game and reality, offering an immersive experience focused on environmental responsibility.

In terms of gameplay, the game features an online arena with popular classic mini-games such as Tetris and Candy Crush. The aim is to attract a wide range of players, from casual gamers to fierce competition enthusiasts, creating a diverse and committed community.

100 million players to save the planet

Driven by a virtuous vision, My Lovely Planet aims to build a massive community of 100 million players by 2030! 

This ambition is guided by a clear and impactful mission:

  • Plant 1 billion trees,
  • Clean up 1 million tonnes of plastic waste in the oceans,
  • Contribute financially to saving 50,000 endangered animal species.

These are certainly titanic goals, but they are realistic in view of the global mobile gaming market, estimated at $102 billion. In France alone, 71% of 18-24 year-olds are regular smartphone gamers.

Renowned partners to boost credibility

My Lovely Planet is currently backed by two gaming giants:

  • Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab, and
  • Unity for Humanity program.

This prestigious association and unique concept attracts top talent, with a development team already comprising 12 professionals, including the creators of Candy Crush.

The support of these major industry players has enabled My Lovely Planet to raise 2 million euros from renowned investors such as Sébastien Borget, co-founder of The Sandbox (SAND), and the French influencer Hasheur.

Momentum already building

In beta-testing since mid-2022, the game has already gathered an impressive community of 20,000 monthly active users. The impact of the concept is particularly evident on social networks, notably with an audience of 520,000 subscribers on TikTok, where My Lovely Planet shares the challenges taken up by players, such as tree planting and beach clean-ups.

The results of these efforts are already visible: 70,000 trees have been planted in Madagascar. The aim is to multiply these achievements 15-fold by the end of the year, thanks to the game’s new features, in anticipation of a global roll-out in 2024.

In line with these achievements, My Lovely Planet plans to integrate Web3 elements, including NFTs, in the near future, to further strengthen the commitment of its community.

A win-win model around a green crypto

My Lovely Planet has developed its own crypto, the My Lovely Coin or MLC, with a win-win logic dedicated to the common good. The more revenue the game generates, the more the value of the MLC will be positively impacted, guaranteeing benefits for all stakeholders.

Part of the MLC in circulation is even allocated to an environmental treasury, acting as an investment fund dedicated to environmental projects. Its potential is considerable, aiming to become the world’s largest fund dedicated to defending the climate and biodiversity.

At the convergence of mobile gaming and decentralized finance, this innovation introduced by My Lovely Planet could bring about lasting changes in economic models, while having a significant impact on our planet.

With its captivating and ethical gameplay, My Lovely Planet could mark the beginning of a new era for the video game industry. Its virtuous model highlights the potential of video games to raise awareness of ecological issues among new generations.

The initiative aims to reconcile the world of gaming, often criticized for its carbon footprint, with the aspirations of a greener society. Will My Lovely Planet inspire an entire generation of gamers to contribute to the preservation of the planet, all directly from their smartphones? Follow this adventure with us to find out.
