LumpyLand (NCEAS)

2014. Mobile game. Collaborators: GJ Lee.

Created for the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS).

The app is a tongue-in-cheek approach to using mechanic as metaphor to illustrate the danger of human overpopulation.

Made in collaboration with a team of international ecology experts: Dr. Robert Costanza, Dr. Ida Kubiszewski, Dr. Sharolyn Anderson, Dr. Paul Sutton, Dr. Rick Ziegler.

The player is in charge of managing the balance of capital resources on LumpyLand, an extraterrestial colonization, and is simply told to not let what happened on Earth happen again on LumpyLand.
