TEST DAY! Habitat the Game

The team at the Centre for Research on Computer Supported Learning and Cognition (CoCo) at Sydney University hosted our Habitat testing day in their fantastic design studio.

We had 18 players participate. They were aged between 7 and 12 years.

We did not give them any direction we just let them start playing the game and we listened to what they had to say.

They ended up playing for 90 minutes, which exceed our expectations.

The baby bear was a massive hit.

We interviewed the players after they played. Their feedback is an integral part to the next phase of our production. Thank you to all who participated.

About habitatthegame

The world’s habitats are in danger and you can help save them. In the vein of the Tamagotchi persistence play craze of the 90s, users will undertake actions to keep an endangered animal alive. In Habitat game players will adopt a polar bear. To keep the bear alive and healthy, players need to successfully complete events in the game and undertake real world actions. By completing these TASKS players will progress through levels, increasing the health of their bear and earn badges of recognition for their efforts. Ultimately the goal is to save the world by improving the bear’s health.
