Save The Seas is Part Pac-Man, Part Eco-Conscious Video Game

on November 20, 2013 6:28 PM

Save The Seas may look a lot like Pac-Man at first glance. There’s a little yellow thing that eats even smaller yellow things until they’re all gone. But instead of being chased by ghosts, pollution is the enemy at hand.

Save The Seas stars Sofia, a little girl from the Gulf of Mexico. Gameplay takes place inside of Sofia’s dreams, where her plush toys come to life and collects shells. But the sea is becoming more and more dangerous, with issues like pollution and human overfishing a threat to players.

Save The Seas is a joint effort by Not Just Fun Softworks and Antara Apps BV, with the purpose of not only having fun, but spreading awareness. The parallels to Pac-Man are intentional, the developers say, to make the game more familiar and attractive, while still getting across an important message about the environment.

Check out the trailer below for a closer look at the game, and check out the Save The Seas website for more information on how to keep the seas clean.

Save The Seas will be available for iOS and Android devices soon.
