This looks like a worthy project - a game designed to educate people about water pollution. No backers yet, but then again the campaign has only started very recently.
Undae is an educational and environmental-friendly video game (only for Windows for the moment).
The main character (Undae) is a water drop with super powers used to clean the pollutants it will encounter during the game.
It takes place all along the water cycle: beginning in the ocean, then going to evaporation, condensation, precipitation, runoff and finally going back to the ocean.
In the 35 playable levels, you will find about 100 pollutants including:
- Everyday life wastes such as fruit peeling, cardboard boxes, plastic bags
- Heavy fuels, oils,
- Various gas,
Each pollutant will have its card on the web site to learn more about it.
Cleaning will have a cost in terms of money (crystals) and will give money according to the correctness of the weapon used. When Undae is touched by a pollutant, it loses some life and dies when it's out of life.
There are 5 ways to deal with pollutants:
- Burrow: representing the easiest way to get rid of pollution: burrowing it, throwing it away. Easy and cheap but limited and give few money.
- Fire or Burn: representing incinerating. It works on a lot of pollutants but can create new (worst) pollutants: toxic gas and micro particles.
- Filter: representing filtering or collecting the micro particles and oils.
- Recycle: self-explanatory, it is used on pollutants whose components can be reused.
- Separator: some pollutants cannot be processed without having been separated first.
