Announcing EcoTrivia: Save the Animals!

Free downloads now available for MacPCiPhone/iPad and Android!

We’re proud to announce our newest game, EcoTrivia: Save the Animals!  In this game you are led by animal ambassadors through four different ecosystems: a toucan in the rainforest, a polar bear in the Arctic, a clownfish in a coral reef, and a pika in the mountains.  In each area you have to answer trivia questions to protect the animals from climate change and habitat destruction.

EcoTrivia: Save the Animals! was made by Rashmi Sharma, Rittwika Rudra, and Courtney Harris for their Information School MSIM capstone project, in collaboration with Dargan Frierson.  Erica Escajeda provided questions for the polar bear section, and many members of EarthGamesUW helped with testing.

The game has already won a best design award from the UW Information School! EcoTrivia: Save the Animals! is freely available for MacPC, iOS and Android!
