This Summer, EdGE will release its newest game, Canaries in a Coalmine.
Canaries is an alternate reality game with a message from the future. Earth’s ecosystem is in great peril. All we know from the message is that birds provide the key to saving the future. Canaries uses a web-based user interface with access to many scientific inquiry tools for the player community to use to gather information and make evidence-based decisions on how to save the birds…and thus save the planet. Players earn points by participating in the game’s activities, but they really advance when the player community rate their contributions as of high value to the decision making efforts.
