Concept

Earthsim content aims to highlight the connections across disciplines and demonstrate a unified holistic systems view of the universe.

Game Content

  • Prebuilt game levels you progress through.
  • Build your own levels and share them with others.
  • Game Versions:
    • The Green Machine (Aquarium worlds)
      • Simulate the world as a tile of landscape in an aquarium.
      • The world is a single piece of bedrock
    • Islands (floating islands in the sky that can interact to form puzzles)
      • Build multiple floating islands that share a greater aquarium atmosphere
      • Islands are created by erupting a volcano that releases lava that cools to form the bedrock that a game level progresses on
      • Water, earth and lava can fall from one island to another carrying heat with it.
    • Planet Crafter (Planetoid worlds)
      • Simulate the world as a ball in space.
      • Planets are small.. Small enough to simulate everything on them for game.
    • Multi player: Team up with others to manage larger levels and shared planet management.

Learning Content

The Original Earthsim featured three types of in house generated content:

  • Encyclopedia Interactive: entries on on plants, animals and geological formations throughout the known universe,
  • News: short pieces on discoveries that guide the viewer to and through those discoveries
  • Documentaries: Longer pieces that tie smaller elements together into a bigger user driven hierarchical path through the experience, a guided learning game experience.

As the new game develops we will look into adding learning content back and creating a new updated free version of Earthsim.
