Econauts is a multiplayer, real-time strategy ecology/economics game where you take control of one of three industries: House Construction, Car Manufacturing, or Farming. You'll try to best your rivals in economic-combat, but your environmental impact may affect everyone's goals...
I was the Lead Game Designer and Programmer on the project working for Learning Games Network. My involvement spanned nearly three years as we worked closely with researchers and educators to build an ecology game that demonstrated how industries can affect lakes and wetlands, often leading to dangerous cyanobacteria and other algae if not managed properly.
Of all of my projects at LGN, Econauts was my absolute favorite to work on, and I'm proud of what we accomplished on it to this day.
