Eat-o-pia - a multiplayer phy-gital game was an exploratory project designed to introduce and explain the concepts of Food chain in our animal kingdom.

During our Game Design module at IDC School of Design, we – a group of four participants – wanted to explore the usage of Games in sharing knowledge of Food chain through hybrid or phy-gital games. To complete our exploratory project were allotted a time period of 1 week.

This project’s main goals were to encourage player interaction and raise players’ awareness of the interdependence and flow of energy among living things in our environment through an interactive game world.

Eat-o-pia is a multiplayer phy-gital game that combines online play with real-world interactions. Players compete in the game, using strategy and the laws of the food chain to survive as long as possible on the game globe.
