This Game Will Get You To Stop Using Plastic For Good!
Plasticity is a 2.5D cinematic platformer about a young girl named Noa who explores and decides the future of her post-oil, plastic-ridden world. Set in the year 2140, in a world where plastic consumption never ended, leaving lifeless cities, flooded towns, and widespread disease in its wake, players will make choices that either help or harm the environment and it's living creatures. After a certain point of the game is reached, 10 years will pass and players will see and play through the impact of their own choices.
“Games are kind of like a vehicle for empathy. They say, “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes” but I think with games they actually give you the shoes, like you can wear them. I think that when people actually play through and can actually be situated and see the problem on their screen and play as that character, it can really impact them and capture their hearts.”, explains Aimee Zhang, Plasticity’s Game Director.
“If someone can come away from playing Plasticity and we can get them to stop grabbing that extra plastic cup when they go out to eat, then we’ve done our job.”, says Michelle Olson, the game’s Lead Designer.
