A fictional murder-mystery game set in a land devastated by water scarcity. The setting, historical facts, character archetypes, and cost-benefit motivations are based on real-world cases. Indeed, in the first chapter of the game players are introduced to the story and the issue of water scarcity, while they explore a group of ships stranded in the desert by a receding sea based on the Aral Sea crisis in Central Asia. The aim of the game is to make information accessible about the water crisis to the emerging generation of young adults. The expectation is that users come away with a message of conservation and an enhanced understanding of water issues.
