Hidden Habitats

With the increasing frequency of extreme weather events due to climate change, there is a dire need to increase awareness about its effects, along with a need to increase participants in the quest for finding long-term adaptation and mitigation strategies. Hidden Habitats is a multi-player, multi-species, world-building game that simulates the experience of climate change across a range of urban ecosystems. The game invites players to enter its world as a mangrove, a human, or as a crab, and allows players to understand the impact of decision making at multiple scales and its interconnectedness. Through gameplay, players can see and test possible futures, empowering them to think critically about the state of their urban environments and make more informed decisions about the present.
