Children's Online Video Game
Fera, an online video game, provides children with a nature education through imagination and play. The ultimate goal of game play is teach elementary aged children the same lesson that are learned from digging in the dirt and climbing trees. These introductions to nature are an important part of childhood and Fera transforms these lessons into an immersive, gamified world that makes them easier and more fun to absorb. Through world building, imagination, and play, Fera introduces complex concepts like evolution and ecology, while enhancing children's passion for exploration and personal growth.
Fera is a planet consisting of 5 different ecological regions, or biomes. The version of the video game takes place in Marin, a bottlenecked peninsula located in an ocean alcove. Because it is surrounded by cascading waterfalls, any amount of rain in Marin causes quick flooding. It doesn't flood for long though, the water level quickly returns to normal after a flood. The species that live in Marin have developed behavioral and anatomical adaptations that help them thrive during the biome's rapid and constant flooding. Each strange and silly creature has a role to play here.
