SALT LAKE CITY — Indoor, away from Utah’s air problems, a team of engineers is creating their very own world that’s up to us to save.
“People learn from doing the right thing and the wrong thing. So, in this game people can choose to help air quality or harm air quality,” said Roger Altizer, who is the director of Game Design and Production at the University of Utah.
Students within the U Entertainment Arts and Engineering program are just in the planning stages of creating an air quality video game that they hope to distribute to high schools by next year.
“Let’s say, for example, you choose to drive on a Red Air day,” Altizer said. “Well, it will get even worse. You’ll see more pollution. People will complain even more. Air quality will get disastrous, and people will leave the Salt Lake Valley.”
