AN OPEN WORLD VIDEO GAME
2019/ The New York Hall of Science
The Pack is an open world strategy game that engages players in environmental science and computational thinking concepts. Set in the imagined world of Algos, the player journeys through a dynamic natural landscape that is home to friendly creatures, each with their own unique power to change the world around them.
Providing essential functions like Dig, Move, Repeat, and more, the creatures of Algos work together algorithmically to help navigate, channel water sources, and search for the seeds that nurture the biodiversity of Algos. As the player collects seeds and progresses through the game, new habitats, food, and Pack creatures emerge, diversifying resources, introducing new obstacles, and encouraging more complex algorithms. Learning and mastering how to use these algorithms is the key to finding all of the seeds and restoring harmony to Algos.
