OUR GOAL! is to motivate kids to preserve nature through play. We want to get Pacha! Protector of Mother Nature in as many kids’ hands as possible! We hope to raise $5,000 in contributions to help us finish the development and marketing of Pacha! to make it available this summer.

OUR DREAM! is to reach $25,000 so we can offer the game as a Freemium App, which means it will available for free by download for iPad and iPhone users with in-app purchases. 

OUR PROJECT! is called Pacha! Protector of Mother Nature. Pacha is a beautiful magic bird that wakes up to find its home, the Giant Tree Forest, very sick due to deforestation, acid rain and pollution. The object of the game is to explore the 2D forest collecting various objects while curing the ailing environment. The game is filled with real species of wild-life and wonderful messages that teach kids the importance of preserving nature while keeping them engaged and entertained. This will be a Paidmium app designed for the iPad and iPhone and for kids aged 6-8. We hope to rollout future versions for other platforms and age-groups.

Pacha! Protector of Mother Nature is actually 2-games-in-1. First, it is an adventure game that at the moment consists of 10 different areas of a diverse forest, each with hidden challenges for users before they can move into the next area. Once all the areas have been cured and the Evil Carbon Monster Machine has been destroyed, Pacha's home, the Giant Tree Forest, will be happy and healthy again. And that's when the game gets really exciting! Just like popular games such as Virtual Pets, Pacha has to protect a Virtual Forest where the player needs to check in often to make sure the forest doesn't get sick. The longer you wait to play, the more pollution can infect the environment. 

YOUR PLEDGE! will help get Pacha! into more little hands by increasing our marketing budget. Your donation will also go towards further developing the game, which is at about 80% finished. That means more characters, more levels, more professional sound recordings—and in more languages.  

OUR STORY! The idea behind Pacha! began as a simple storybook, one that creator Sebastian would write and draw. But early on we realized that the life lessons in Pacha! demanded a medium that would allow kids to interact with the story more directly. Soon we had a game in our hands, one that empowers kids to learn, make choices, and see how their actions affect the storyline.

OUR TEAM! are an independent app development team called Nature Things. We focus on nature and entertainment applications for mobile devices, and Pacha! is our first attempt at combining both while being educational.

SEBASTIAN BURRIEZA 
As the creator of Pacha! Sebastian wears many hats: graphic artist, animator, programmer and sound designer. A developer of several successful apps about nature, including Gardening Guides, Sebastian has dedicated himself to nature projects for the last 10 years. His work has been featured by Apple in the AppStore and has received notable mention by Wired magazine, Appadvice.com and specialty websites.

LUCIANO STALMAN 
As marketing director for Pacha!, Luciano is in charge of getting the game into the hands of as many kids as possible, and he knows how to speak their language. Luciano has been a graphic designer and teacher for many years, teaching elementary school kids how to use and express themselves through computers. One of the most important things he learned in his experience is that the best way to teach kids is through play. You need to go beyond “show don’t tell” and let them interact.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is competing with the multitudes of other apps already available on the AppStore. We feel pretty confident that this will be a success, but we still need help from you! If you're not able to donate, please do us the favor of sharing it with your family, friends and colleagues by word of mouth or through social media. Thank you!
