Wildfire is a game about saving the world. Impediments like rampant poverty, gender inequality, inadequate education and environmental degradation cannot be overcome by marching armies, secret potions or magic swords. This is a game about how they can be defeated.
Through volunteerism, social interaction, and nonviolent activism, players will explore a sprawling urban landscape, building up grassroots support and seeking legislation on key Millennium Development Goals. Standing in their way are menacing “agents,” representing various forces opposing positive societal change. Wildfire’s ultimate goal is not only to offer a challenging, immersive gameplay experience, but also to promote universal awareness of the UN MDGs, and how they can be achieved through concrete action.
Wildfire try to transfer the knowledge of life into a game. Be smart, be active, stand out. Someone has to. It is easy, in words and deeds, to follow along. It can feel strange to do or say something different. But without that unease, there is no freedom. And the moment you set an example, the spell of the status quo is broken, and others will follow.
