About the Project
The Future Forgers are a team of six students from Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center. After pitching the project to ETC faculty in the spring 2022 semester, we received the approval to create an interactive narrative experience called Project Ecotopia. The aim of which is to inspire young adults to do more for the environment and show the effect one person can have.
To help guide our design we are using tactics from the IGDA Environmental Game Design Playbook. The main tactics we are focused on are Sensory Affect and Systems Knowledge. You can learn more about these tactics from the Design Playbook available here.
The game is available for Windows PC and Mac and available for download from itch.io. We are also planning to submit it to game festivals and competitions like Games for Change and Indiecade.
