Corporate Crusher is a side-scroller game that educates individuals about eco-friendly substitutes to bad products.
Pollution has always been a prevalent and insidious problem in the world. While blame is placed mostly on individuals, corporations impact the ecosystem on a much greater scale. Major companies tend to sacrifice eco-friendly materials for inexpensive alternatives that are detrimental to the environment. For instance, many cosmetics contain microbeads, which are non-biodegradable plastics that are harmful to aquatic animals.
Corporate Crusher is a game that educates individuals about the disastrous effects that some brand-name goods have on the environment. In the game, the user has to jump over harmful products and collect the eco-friendly substitutes. Each time the user encounters a product, a blurb of text informs the user about the product’s effect on the environment. In addition to the game, the website has a learn page which further explains in detail what materials the product contains and its consequences.
