Concept
The Life of Bees explores the global issue of bee colony collapses through an interactive Unity game. The experience lets you dive into the perspectives of multiple involved stakeholders - Bees and Humans - and understand how these two interact with each other. The game is located at a Californian Almond Farm on a cloudy morning. You start exploring the scene as a farmer, who is tasked to regulate the pesticide usage on that farm. However, as you explore, you get the unique chance to swap perspective with one of the bees on your farm to understand how your actions impact wildlife.
