Research Project

SimCoast

The purpose of this project is to create an awareness and an understanding of an environmental issue to potential stakeholders. These stakeholders include administrators, lawmakers, and the general public. To be more specific, this project focuses on the impacts that climate change and coastal erosion have on the environment through the development of a city-building video game. This video game explores the impacts through changes in the game environment that impact the player’s experience. In the process, the project aims to learn approaches to help mitigate these environmental issues.
