World Oceans Day: RT3D projects make waves and encourage conservation

Healthy oceans are essential for the survival of all life on Earth, so we need to protect them. We’re committed to ocean conservation as part of our ESG (environmental, social, and governance) efforts to build a more sustainable future and invest in our planet.

Here are some exciting projects using Unity to celebrate the planet’s oceans, educate audiences, and encourage action:

An Otter Planet by Habithéque is an in-progress PC game designed to teach players about water and help them understand its importance to all life on earth. In addition to raising awareness through play, An Otter Planet will raise money for charities to support water-related protection and revitalization efforts through in-game purchases and charitable donations.

Raft, a PC game developed by Redbeet Interactive, highlights the incredible vastness of the open ocean. Players wake up adrift on a raft and then fight for survival by crafting, growing food, and avoiding shark attacks. Experiencing this game provides a new appreciation for the danger, stillness, and mystery of the oceans.

The Hydrous is an innovative project that designs science-based augmented and virtual reality experiences to engage audiences with the wonders of ocean life. The creators’ goal is to provide “equitable access to ocean exploration,” which in turn builds understanding of beautiful and threatened marine ecosystems.

We believe that the world is a better place with more creators in it, and we’re excited to see the inspiring work being done to realize a sustainable, inclusive, and equitable world for all.
