UnEarth Challenges

In UnEarth, players seek to understand why their world has changed so dramatically. In doing so, they are challenged:

  • to become more flexible when navigating the chaos of this new world;
  • to manage conflict by applying proper communication strategies; and
  • to become more confident in their ability to correctly recognize, and adapt to, a variety of communication styles.

Will you help Taylor explore and understand this new world?

UnEarth Messages

The player learns to make better dialogue choices by recognizing the emotional state of those they communicate with and then respond appropriately and strategically. The player then continues to apply these new-found communication strategies in order to continue their progression through this mysterious new world. Ultimately, the player learns how to successfully navigate the game's eclectic cast of characters, with their correspondingly wide range of personalities.

And they do so without violence.
