Collaborative forestation with small poems
Be a poet and plant trees!
A small 'game' experiment by Rat King - Friedrich Hanisch (programming) and Jana Reinhardt (graphics). Made within 36 hours.
The reforestation of the planet is one of the things we can do to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere and stop the greenhouse effect. This project wants to raise awareness to this fact.
Interesting concept. It can become a great social application or game(like Second Life) if it is worked upon. Maybe some form of structure to the poems can be added? Nonetheless, an intriguing game.
I love the concept and the art. My main critique (naturally there's always a negative, no matter what you make, right?) is that the poetry and actual forest building could be linked a little more clearly. What determines what poetry I get?
As a writer myself, I might like the idea of putting together my own lines of poetry and seeing trees sprout based on what I assemble. I know that's ambitious though.
Nice concept and good art too. It can be further developed into something better by making the game more clearer and adding a few more things to do in it. Developing a good and communicative UI will help alot.
Great little idea! I want to grow more poems now, and am keeping the tab open so I can do it here and there (I wish it had a real time timer so I could see how much time I had left to wait). It's an idle game of sorts in the end :)
The wait aspect is an elegant nudge to make us check out (and possibly donate to) the links you put on the home page.
Some features I wish the toy had to feel more complete:
Anyway these are suggestions off the top of my head but all in all it's a great idea and a solid 36h implementation.
Quite lovely. Nice graphics and I enjoyed the font.
Oh, this is just so lovely. Amazing concept.
