Reset Earth is an educational game from The United Nations Environment Programme that's available now for iOS and Android. It's a game all about climate change that hopes to teach children and adolescents about the role the Ozone layer plays in protecting the Earth.
It's set in 2084 and sees three teenagers – called Knox, Sagan and Terran – embarking on an adventure to save themselves and the world from the GROW. The GROW is a life-threatening disease that prevents anyone from being able to live beyond the age of 25.
On their hunt for a solution, they end up travelling through time as they look to uncover the secrets of the past to help save the present and future. Reset Earth itself plays out as a platformer that sees you switching between the three main characters to make use of their different abilities.
Discussing the game, Meg Seki from the Ozone Secretariat said: “The protection of the ozone layer cannot be considered a done deal. It must be a continuous effort by us and by future generations. If our children learn about the grim consequences of a ruined ozone layer through a fantasy cartoon and game app, they will be aware of its importance and protect it.”
Reset Earth is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a completely free-to-play game. If you're interested in learning more about the concept behind the game, there's plenty of details on the official website.
