Interested in helping to shape a science-based game?
Fire and Flora is a “serious” game about nature, ecology, and connections. In terms of gameplay, Fire and Flora is a close cousin of popular card games like Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh! However, unlike those games, this one is based on real life. More specifically, F&F is based on the ecology of Southern and Central California. Game cards represent real plants, places and events (e.g. Sagebrush, Henry Coe State Park, El Niño), and nature-related curiosities (e.g. Evil Squirrel, Pack Rat).
The game is designed by Tim Handley, an ecologist-turned-educator. Tim recently contacted us, looking for opportunities to share his work and to make connections with families, gamers, and educators.
He’s seeking playtesters (ages 12+) to provide feedback and help polish the game design, and he’s seeking word-of-mouth to help in an upcoming Kickstarter funding campaign.
Anyone interested in playtesting may contact Tim directly by emailing unnumberedT@gmail.com. Anyone interested in helping with his word-of-mouth campaign may “like” the game on Facebook, and pass the word to their friends.
