Aquacity Game

Aquacity Game, a serious game to discover the water supply networks

 

Aquacity Game is an innovative serious game dedicated to the discovery of water supply networks. Designed and developed by Interactive 4D for SICASIL (a local association of towns in Cannes territory for drinkable water) and SUEZ (formerly Lyonnaise des Eaux) Côte d'Azur, Aquacity Game allows kids and teenagers to understand the way tap water is collected and delivered to their home.

 

Aquacity game can be played for free since October 2014:
. on a computer on www.aquacitygame.fr
. as a mobile application for Android smartphones and tablets on Google Play and for iPhone and iPad devices on the App Store.

Play the role of a water services manager !

 

Many missions are offered to the player to manage the supply, transmission and delivery of drinkable water directly to the tap, taking into account the risks concerning water resources (pollution, flooding, drought, climate changes...). He has to make strategic and financial decisions (investments, diversification and protection of water resources, management of water leaks in the network...), taking into account technical, financial and environmental requirements in the short, medium and long terms.


Aquacity Game immerses players in a colorful and fun virtual world, reconstructing eight cities of the Cannes territory (South of France): Auribeau-sur-Siagne, Cannes, Le Cannet, Mougins, Pégomas, La Roquette-sur-Siagne, Théoule-sur-Mer and Vallauris Golfe-Juan.

A free tool for schools

Aquacity Game is a serious game that can be used as a teaching support  for schools, college and high school (only in French so far).

The French association Méditerranée 2000 (association for education and awareness towards sustainable development in Cannes) will use the game as a tool for the "young" target to promote the themes of citizenship, man in his environment and respect for water resources. 

Aquacity Game has been recently referenced by the Academy of Nice (South of France) as a digital resource recommended for college and high school.

The game has also been part of a contest, that has been launched in March 2015, during the World Water Day, which closed the international decade of "Water for Life", managed by the World Health Organization. The players had the possibility to share their score on the website and the best players won prizes.
