Save the animals, get woke, and play a game!

Caedi S, Narges T, Estephanie A, Catherine M

We created the website "atRISK.life" (currently still an HTML file) to raise awareness for endangered species by explaining their importance, giving options on how you can help, and playing a game. The site combines ideas from other conservationist sites, such as WWF, and is a resource for those looking to donate as well. The game we made was created through a 2D game editor, Defold, to add user engagement and fun to our site.

Endangered species are dying out unnaturally, and it affects the ecosystem as a whole.

We created a simpler site for people to become informed and donate to endangered animals by linking them to other sites. We also created a game to add user engagement and keep people coming back to visit our site.

We had trouble creating the game in Defold as it used a new programming language, Lua. Therefore, we had to base our game along a tutorial and quickly learn the ropes of Defold so that we could implement it into our website.

"It looks so professional!"
