Now that schools are closed, the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) is looking for your help!
We ordinarily have kids at our museum test out new activities and digital games but we unfortunately had to close our doors. Because the museum is currently closed, we want to bring the museum to you.
We would love for you to play our newest game The Pack and share your ideas about how it works.
Set in the fictional world of Algos where healthy ecosystems have faltered, food and water are scarce, and strange creatures roam the land, players must find a way to bring the ecosystem into balance by replenishing water sources and finding seeds. They’ll need the help of a “Pack” of creatures to help dig up water and seeds and bump food off of trees. As you progress through the game more creatures will be unlocked, and can be combined to make algorithms. Learning and mastering how to use algorithms is the key to finding all of the seeds and restoring harmony to Algos.
Created by NYSCI and Design I/O, this all-ages game can be downloaded for free to iPhones and iPads via the App Store, or to Windows or Mac OSX computers.
