EarthGames has been hard at work developing games this summer, and we have two exciting announcements!
EarthGames, Professor Dargan Frierson, and Professor Josh Lawler were mentioned in an article published in Nature on July 19th! The article is about scientists who develop board games, card games and digital games that teach young and old users about science concepts.
To coincide with this article, EarthGames released Erode Runner on 7/19 for iPad, iPhone, and Android phones and tablets. During this game, the player takes on the role of an Arctic fox struggling to avoid Arctic coastal erosion and other obstacles while simultaneously saving lost baby foxes. Throughout the game, players gain access to information about the environmental, social and economic impacts of coastal erosion in the Arctic.
We have many games in development right now. Be on the lookout for updates to Infrared Escape, and new games about pikas, rain on snow events, and hurricanes! We can’t wait to share these with you.
