I’ve been away (mainly on Waiheke Island) working on Flight of Pollen, for the past two years. All the while, the indominatible Cushla, has been busy too, both illustrating + researching.
Pollination in Aoteaoroa / New Zealand is totally fascinating!
This year, 2017, with help from Wellington Enviroschools (& others), we’re testing in schools. If you’d like to follow as students from a variety of schools test the game, please subscribe to the list below.
Later there’ll be fundraising campaign, with a launch at the Mahara Gallery in September. The Mahara is where we launched my first game, Cloak of Protection, and I’m really greatful for their on-going support.
Laid out on the ground-cloth are the flowers of the forest of Aotearoa / New Zealand (TILES). Together DAY & NIGHT must co-operate to pollinate them (PLAYER DISCS). Do that, then the team that collects the most berries, wins!
A game in four chapters.
