Title: Developing an educational computer game about belowground ecology: an Internship with Area Denial Games

Summary: Julia was funded by TerreWEB to do an internship with Area Denial Games, a Vancouver indie game company. She and her collaborators Christopher Adderley and Alex Catamo developed an educational computer game called Shroomroot, which teaches players basic information about plant nutrition and mycorrhizal networks. In this talk she will be presenting her internship experience, both the story and the lessons learned. She will discuss specifics about game development as well as some general principles about collaboration and the creative process.
