Our Earth Your Choice is a short video game with 4 levels. It was developed working with 25 children and young people aged 8-20 over Zoom during the Covid lockdowns. Some of them are pictured above!


Artists and developers from One to One Development Trust engaged in 38 workshops over Zoom exploring different concepts, ideas, and mechanics for the game, with practical examples delivered via screensharing.
