Flood away: A game designed that you can’t win

Unlike other game, we designed a game that players can never win, even the best player in the World. Sound like an game design error but with a purpose.


Why? In order to demonstrate the every year battle of Vietnamese farmers when flood come. They will never win the battle against nature, but you can help donate to make their problem less painful. By using game platform on Facebook, we get attention of users, lead them into the game, play it, experience it as farmers did and rise the sympathy in their heart.


We use Đông Hồ painting as main source of inspiration for the art direction of the game. Đông Hồ painting is traditional art rooted from Vietnamese agriculture which subjects are around daily farmer’s life. Each of the items has it own power level and cool down time for player to choose to push back the flood.
