With a small team in Costa Rica, Dwire has developedRainforest Rangers, a multi-platform game that teaches kids about rainforests, including their importance and the threats they face.
The premise is simple. Two characters Sophie and Juan Ramon try to fight off a villain named Lee Zardo who is bent on destroying the rainforest. In the process, users learn about rainforests. The game is accompanied by an educational web site with resources for teachers, parents, and counselors. Topics covered include core curriculum concepts like the water cycle, characteristics of wildlife, and food webs.
