Overview

Our culture is falling apart. We are reaping decades of taking God’s message out of our culture. Very few voices speak into the lives of children with a Godly message. Children spend countless hours on screens. There is hardly any faith-based content in the app stores. What messages are our children taking in?

Who will rise up to steward the next generation?

We believe that what people play matters. TruPlay produces mobile games that resonate with our 4 Foundations of Fun, Beauty, Excellence, and God’s Truth. With God’s Blessing, we will continue to reach Millions around the world and produce a tremendous amount of economic value for everyone involved.

We’re building an interactive Content Platform for children.
