Love the presentation and polish. It's also nice to see the science embedded in the game mechanics rather than tacked on between levels.
Fantastic concept. A really clever way to put together a gaming classic with the concept of albedo feedbacks in the climate system. I thought this was really well done. The one thing that would be nce to change would be the size of the ice patch on the 3d globe between each of the time periods to stitch together the idea that the ice caps are melting through time. Again a great idea and well pulled of. Great effort!
I LOVED this game! Such a simple but effective concept. The mechanics of the game and the narrative sit so nicely together - it really was a joy to play and I agree....I see a full game in Nanuq's future! One thing I wondered was whether educational value could be improved by suggesting changes that we could make as individuals, rather than the big global changes (i.e,. stop using fossil fuels). This way it may help players feel like they have more control and can make small changes to make a difference. Again - LOVED it and THANK YOU!
