Game concept & initial idea

concept sketch

The working title : Let’s help endangered species ALL TOGETHER

The concept is focused on a specific research method called Assisted Migration which is to help species move where they can thrive when the climate has changed and they can not get there by themselves.

The goal of the game is moving endangered species to good habitats. When people walk into the game area, an endangered animal appears on the floor. To move the animal, people should surround the animal by holding their hands. Basically they can carry the animal by blocking it. Once they capture the animal, they should move toward good habitats all together without missing hands. 

The game is to give indirect experience of helping the endangered animals to the audience. By doing so, it can encourage people to know about the issue caused by the climate change. Also, the requirement of collaboration would let people experience that more than one’s effort is needed to actually help those endangered species.
