EcoAction Mobile App: A Game Practice for Eco-activist
Abstract— Environmental awareness enables us to take measures in protecting and maintaining the environment. Moreover, video games are available everywhere as a means to not only entertain, but also to develop one’s skills. They may be used as a teaching tool while still being fun to play to instill healthy habits, especially when it comes to the environment. This paper presents the development of EcoAction – a tap and drag 2D Android game that promotes environmentalism. We describe the game design of EcoAction and provide a validated questionnaire for assessing the aesthetics and gameplay. Results demonstrate that the received positive responses for its well-designed gameplay and appealing visuals. Therefore, videogames like EcoAction can be used as an awareness platform to encourage players to adopt environmental practices.
