Energy Audit Field Training Simulation

 Play the game and learn how to perform an energy audit.

Forest Defender was developed together with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to help bring awareness to residents and visitors about the dangers of the Asian Longhorned Beetle. Ten tablets are to be placed at state park visitor centers within larger exhibits to help draw in more visitors. The game will be surrounded by additional information to allow visitors to learn what they choose as they traverse the visitors center.

Knowing that visitors only stay at the centers for a short period of time, we wanted to give users a full experience within their visit. Each game lasts only 60 seconds, but with the hope that if users only experience our game it will be more memorable and enjoyable than posters and displays alone.
