About

We will be relaunching our Kickstarter campaign, which you can find by clicking here: relaunch.gaiatown.com

Our planet is on a dangerous course and its important to make a change NOW! Gaia Town is a game in which you can help our troubled planet by building your own town from scratch!

The story begins when our friends from the future the Eco-Squad need to come back in time and ask you to help them start saving the planet! The first step is creating your own personalised avatar that will begin the journey inside your house in GaiaTown.

After you create your avatar you will be guided each day thru different activities like picking up trash, recycling, harvesting crops and other unique games that will determine the course of your town. These activities are important to complete to gain experience in the game so you can make a bigger town but always being careful of your CO2! if not your town will deteriorate and day by day will be destroyed.

But you also need to learn about taking care the environment to advance!! Part of special activities are playing mini games like cleaning rivers, washing dishes, puzzles and 17 more games with a lesson on each level to be answered correctly! If you do you will gain experience, points to buy and build more and the most important factor, clean your town of CO2!!!

Never before has learning to take care of the planet, been this much fun!

While GaiaTown is an engaging and entertaining game, the goal is to educate our children, raise awareness about the state of our planet and provide support to solve a global problem: pollution.

Each mini-game lesson has been developed through careful studies, optimizing all the information available for the care of our environment. We use real data from agencies that monitor the environment throughout the world, to raise awareness about the deterioration of our planet, and to highlight how important it is to start taking steps to address it.

Each lesson is accompanied by an evaluation that reinforces the knowledge acquired, in addition to allotting rewards for correct answers.

The object is to educate through short lessons and reinforce through game play the importance of things like: recycling, reducing carbon emissions, fire safety, organic food sources, energy solutions, and so much more!

Children are the future of this world; it is our duty to help them improve it by teaching them the path to a better future.

 Our motivation is the education of the upcoming generations; to achieve what appears to be unattainable: the rescue of a wounded planet. We believe this is possible if we all work together; that’s why we’re asking for your help. 

GaiaTown will also work with and promote THE ROSE EDUCATION FOUNDATION, which is a non-profit 501C3 that promotes, supports, and establishes educational opportunities for children in disadvantaged areas of Guatemala. You can visit their site and learn more about what they do at: http://www.roseeducation.org/.

GaiaTown was created to be easy and fun to use! You will be able to explore your city in two different views: a 3D slightly rotated view with a top-down perspective (isometric) and a third-person perspective that you can switch to at any time.

 The 3D perspective will allow you to rotate so that you can check every angle of your growing city.

You will be able to walk around your city and see everything that you have built to help our planet.

GaiaTown is the first educational, 3D, multigame produced in Central America. We intend to prove that technological development can also be used for the benefit of the environment. In GaiaTown, you will experience incredible gameplay featuring real 3D graphics. This project is a breakthrough in educational entertainment; a true revolution.

 CITY:

AVATAR:

 CATALOG:

As you progress throughout the game, you will discover 20 captivating mini-games that will engage and inspire. That number will increase with the thematic expansion we plan to do after launching GaiaTown. Each game will include a lesson that teaches you how to take care of the world in a fun and entertaining way. We assure you that there will always be something exciting to do in GaiaTown.

The Eco-Squad! Our friends that came from the future to help us save the planet are 8 animated and friendly characters that will guide every step of the way and provide us with important lessons, resources and know-how to create your own personalised city free of CO2!

Gaia Town provides kids with an interactive and exciting way to develop important perspectives on crucial issues facing our planet. Our goal is to expand their world view and inspire them to seek alternative solutions for our planet’s problems.

The goal of our Kickstarter project is to be able to release GaiaTown in September 2014. The funds will support the work needed to finish the game and publish on iTunes and Google Play. We’d also like to expand the story, create new mini-games, add more avatars, broaden the city catalog, enhance the graphics, add other languages, and so much more! 

With your help, we can raise a generation of kids that understands how our planet works, realizes the challenges it is facing, and is prepared to create a better future. So what are you waiting for? Join us to change the world by inspiring a new generation.

MAS DIGITAL is digital development company over 8 years experience in creating games and other services based in Guatemala. Recently however, we decided to create our own project!

Over the years we have seen ideas come and go, on topics like: how to educate kids using technology, confronting environmental issues, and how to help to solve those problems specifically in developing countries like Guatemala.

We thought- why don’t WE do something about it? We have the experience creating games and know the condition of our planet! 

So we formed a group of very talented people and started to work on this amazing project that is almost ready- now we just need YOUR help to finish it!

Risks and challenges

Gaia Town is a project created by MAS DIGITAL which has been in progress for over a year and a half. The purpose of joining Kickstarter to raise funds is to be able to finish the game on a faster time period, as well as helping us to be able to promote the game on a larger level so we can reach more children worldwide.

The risks we may encounter are slim since the game is well advanced and almost in its final stages.

Having had 8+ years experience in game development and other digital services, we know the difficulties of creating a friendly, entertaining, easy-to-use game that will captivate children of all ages while educating them about the environmental problems we face and giving them solutions to help change our world.
