Los Angeles, California - April 3, 2020 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE: EPY), together with comedian, host and producer Howie Mandel, are thrilled to announce Breakout the Masks Charity Campaign and the Howie's Games project launching today.

The Breakout the Masks Charity Campaign was co-created by Mandel to get much-needed masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to doctors, nurses, and front line workers. Mandel is a well-known germaphobe and well-practiced social-distancer, whose commitment to Breakout the Masks is instrumental to help show others ways to deal with and overcome anxiety every day. It's more important than ever to be extra safe with hand-washing and social distancing, but also to learn how to have fun and laugh despite anxieties.

"I have spent most of my life in fear of a disease outbreak like COVID-19," says Howie Mandel. "Let's work, and play, together, while in self-isolation and keeping social distance, to ensure front line workers - doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers - are safe, so that they can keep us safe."

Donations to Break out the Masks can be made at www.howiesgames.com and 100% of monies collected from the game, weekly challenges, and the site go to getting doctors, nurses, and front line workers N95 face masks, portable ventilators, gloves, and other PPE to protect from spreading the virus.

The first challenge at www.howiesgames.com/donate will launch today and encourage users to play the Outbreak mini-game available on Apple App Store and Google Play. More information on the charity, the challenge, and to download Outbreak to help Breakout the Masks is available at howiesgames.com.

"Outbreak is the first in a series of game titles that draw attention to the COVID-19 outbreak and how most of us can contribute through self-isolation and social distancing," says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital and co-creator of Breakout the Masks. "We have been working with Howie Mandel since September on a series of titles based on his germaphobia. By building quarantine compatible games we hope we can help make families more comfortable and quarantine compatible too."

Outbreak is a fast-paced and unique match-3 game that anyone can enjoy! Different infectious viral droplets are falling, match-3 of the same color by rotating and watch for special bacteria, viruses, and coronaviruses which can save your life. Destroy the disease before the cells reach the inner cavity. See Howie's reactions as you play the game.

Successive mobile games featuring Mandel will be released with each game making it harder and harder to find or unlock Howie in the game.
