We’re so glad to announce that -for the very first time- one of our games is a finalist for the Game Connection America 2016 Development Awards. The nominees were chosen from 170 applicants for 11 categories.
“Our Heritage” aims to create awareness of the causes and effects of climate change, that’s why it’s participating in the “Storytelling / Best Story” category, sharing the spot with other 4 games from USA, Spain and UK.
It’s an honor to carry Costa Rica’s name with us to a prestigious event like this, and also, being the first videogame studio in the country achieving this nomination, empower us to continue working hard.
Tablets, smartphones and pc will be the devices to play the game on; it’s still in its funding stage and you can know more about it here: http://ourheritagegame.com
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony that will take place on March, 14th at Game Connection America 2016 in San Francisco, California. Check the nominees out here: http://goo.gl/WPHvI2
By the way, “Our Heritage” is aiming for the “People’s Choice Award” as well, and it’s open to the public election for people from around the world with a Facebook account. We’d appreciate if you help us voting here (give us a “like”) : https://goo.gl/Brz5bK
This project is funded by the Franco-German Cultural Fund and is implemented thanks to the partnership between the Fair Play Labs Team and the Libertad Park Center for Technology and Visual Arts (CETAV), with the aim of developing a videogame to raise awareness on climate change and its severe consequences.
We especially appreciate the support of the French and German embassies in Costa Rica, to Mr. Damiano Borgogno and Mr. Pascal Girot from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Climate Change Office in Costa Rica and everyone involved in this initiative.
