Energetic

The Energetic project aims to enlighten and educate teenagers about the production and consumption of energy within our society. Rather than being an educational game, we hope Energetic can be a fun way to spark an interest in energy consumption.

Energetic plays like a classic platform game, but with an advanced "hidden" system. This system creates a link between the player, world, objects and enemies. All actions by the player affects the world and this requires the player to have a deeper commitment to the game and make sure he/she isn't neglecting the outcome of his/her doings.
With an innovating control and interaction solution the game-play will remain subtle, with an easy learning curve, yet challenging and fresh. Energetic is a technology demonstration of this idea and can be viewed as a small part of a full game.
