The game asks: can animals stay safe despite the unsustainable suburban expansion in North America?The game spans hundreds of years, from “long ago” to 1820 all the way up to 2020 (and beyond!). The player, as Potnia Theron, shows up at an increasing rate, at first it’s 100 years, then 50 years, then 25, and so on. This captures the increasing rate of environmental damage done to our planet from suburban expansion.
Animal spirits follow Potnia Theron in the game to get to safety. That is, unless the animals get killed by human activity. As time progresses the obstacles to animals change, starting with snares and ending with vehicles and invisible pollutants.
