The CREAMARE project will involve marine archaeologists, ocean scientists, and creative industry experts, such as graphic designers, 3D artists, level designers, and sound designers. Together, they will co-produce a Serious Game focused on Underwater Cultural Heritage and Ocean Literacy.
This game will allow players to explore highly realistic 3D digital models of eight underwater cultural sites.
Players will visit these sites to solve riddles and face challenges related to cultural heritage and environmental threats, such as oil spills from shipwrecks and ghost nets damaging marine life.
The game story takes place in a dystopian future, where scientists, while attempting to combat marine pollution, inadvertently created a mutated creature that now threatens the deep sea and its hidden treasures. To protect UCH, players must fight the source of pollution by resolving some ecological issues and bringing back historical artifacts to their belonging sites. Selected candidates will receive the detailed storyboard after signing a cooperation agreement.
