Earth Girl 2: Preparing for the Tsunami is an interactive game about making strategic decisions that can directly increase the survival rate in coastal communities during earthquakes and tsunamis. Earth Girl is the host and guide, and the player is the protagonist of this disaster scenario.
The casual strategy game was developed by an interdisciplinary team of game artists and scientists at the Earth Observatory of Singapore. Earth Girl 2 is based on real-life situations, with an emphasis on learning preparedness and survival skills. It was inspired by the kids who live in coastal communities throughout Asia, and by the stories told by survivors of recent tsunamis.
The Singapore National Research Foundation recognized Earth Girl 2 by including it in the2014 Sciences and Technologies Showcase, one of the two projects from Nanyang Technological University that made it into the list.
The game was reviewed in the Sci Dev Net science communication website: Earth Girl 2: The 21st century’s answer to Super Mario?, 7 May 2014.
The French version of Earth Girl 2: Se préparer au tsunami will be rolled out in June 2015 at theScience & You conference and festival in Nancy, France. The Indonesian, Thai, and Tamil versions are scheduled to be launched regionally in mid-2015. The Japanese and Spanish versions are in the works and scheduled for Fall delivery.
