BuzzFeed Animation Studio launches mental health-focused video game, ‘Run Boggs Run’

BuzzFeed Animation Studio brings BuzzFeed’s first-ever video game, Run Boggs Run which launched today on iOS and Android app stores.

Run Boggs Run is a classic endless runner genre that expands the universe of the hit BuzzFeed animated series The Land of Boggs. The game follows fan-favourite animated characters Boggo and her best friend Boe through the Valley of Despair, as they overcome life’s obstacles and collect self-care tokens to defeat the Stress Monster. Run Boggs Run is an ode to how challenging 2020 was and the importance of leaning on friends to get through tough times. The single-player game offers both a fun escape for new and existing Land of Boggs fans while tying in real-world themes of friendship, mental wellness, and stress management.
