I am developing an open-world action adventure game, Acropora: Defender of the Reefs, that will highlight the relationship between humans, pollutants, climate-change, and coral reef extinction. I hope to help players understand the real consequences of climate change, while demonstrating how human actions influence all different forms of life. In addition to implicitly teaching players about the relationship between carbon emissions and rising water temperatures, the game aims to teach responsibility and encourage empathy.
