Balance

, , ,

We formed Team Chinchilla during the 2nd semester of our Masters of Digital Media course. We developed Balance, an iOS game that teaches players the value of balancing their lives and sustaining the environment. It was developed for the First Nations Technology Council under the guidance of Roadhouse Interactive. We presented and demoed the game at the FNTC STRONG conference.
