The game is based on two characters, one which looks to dispose of trees, and another that nurtures them. Gameplay loosely involved avoiding the tapping of the nurturer while “stopping” his opposite with the same action.
It’s the goal of the developer to encourage awareness of tree conservation with this game.
Zabuza Labs Founder Manas Gajare talks about social responsibility. â€œGlobal warming, climate change these are some very serious concerns that we, all the living beings are facing,” he says. “At Zabuza Labs we asked ourselves what we can do about it. We are good at making games. So here it is â€“ a small effort from our end to raise awareness of saving trees among people. This is the first step towards much larger vision of using games for social cause.â€
