I Made a Game About Climate Change
Recently I heard about the wildfires happening or did happen in Alaska, all of the west us including Alaska. Mediterranean Europe, Siberia, Australia, and the Amazon Rainforest are also having wildfires unlike seen before. Also I heard about mass reef bleaching, less snow on mountains, more intense heat waves, more flooding, worse wildfires, arctic melting, forests not growing back, global droughts, extinction of more wildlife, methane hydrates shooting up from the ocean, ocean drifts weakening, permafrost melting, and it speeding up of climate change uncontrollably.
That is so much for a teenager to have to take. Many of them feel helpless and despair over Climate Change. They also feel like people in power don’t care about Climate Change. It has gotten so bad that many people just gave up on trying to help the planet. We only have six years before it gets to the point of no return. I for once felt this grief, I felt like no matter what I did nothing would ever work. The news was so hopeless and grim about climate change. It took awhile for me to realize that news is grim to keep people hooked to it. It sure did work on me. Later I turned that grief into creation. I made a game on roblox called climate change. It starts with a healthy looking forest, though there are some flaws. The game used to have three places, Bad Ending, Wildfire, and Drought land. I later decided to make someplace called a secret place, it’s a place where you can go to find other places like a reef, mountain, and even a town. This game has taken all summer to make and it’s a rather simple layout, go to places and find badges. As of August, 16, 2021, this game has 11 badges. The climate change message needs to spread more.
