Project Overview: In alignment with the Planet:Red Summit, CODE:Red stands as a dynamic week-long digital alternate reality game that unites participants across the globe through the expanse of the internet. Players converge within a virtual forum to unlock enigmas, brainstorm solutions, and collectively unravel the heart of the game’s enigmatic storyline. Rooted in the context of the climate crisis, this interactive experience serves as a platform for participants to express their unique perspectives on local climate impacts and share insights on how the Red Cross and Red Crescent can make a difference.

Interacting harmoniously with both AI entities and fellow players, the mission is to amplify the voices of youth in the discourse of climate change. This entails deciphering cryptic messages scattered across digital landscapes, piecing together clues to unravel a captivating narrative, and harmonizing efforts to decode multilingual enigmas.

Immersive Elements: As players tread the path of discovery, they’ll traverse a myriad of experiences: from engaging in an 8-bit video game reminiscent of nostalgia to conversing with AI entities that breathe life into the virtual world. These elements intertwine with undertakings like locating missing individuals, unearthing public webcams, and embarking on a collective quest to dismantle a mysterious organization.

Culmination and Impact: The culmination of this thrilling voyage culminates with the celebration of players who contributed to the game’s unravelling during the prestigious Planet:Red Summit. Their achievements are showcased alongside a comprehensive account of the game, enriching the summit’s narrative. Furthermore, the contributions made by players in the form of game submissions will illuminate diverse youth perspectives on climate change.

The game’s inclusive design accommodates players across four languages: English, Arabic, French, and Spanish. Participants have the choice to embark individually or form teams, emphasizing collaboration as the key to unlocking intricate puzzles. The aspiration is to engage 1,000 young minds in this transformative experience.
