Trails Forward

The Games Learning Center is currently developing a game titled "Trails Forward" which is an ecological, multiplayer strategy game currently in development with funding from the UW-Madison Graduate School. Based on the research of the interdisciplinary UW-Madison Conservation Conversation Group, Trails Forward will enable testing the hypothesis that complex, agent-based simulation games can broaden public participation in science. Early users of prototypes for Trails Forward have had a chance to pilot features and connect the game to local ecological issues. Feedback from these early users has driven revisions and updates to the game for further deployment.
