Pipeline - Hector Marriott (10), Ely

785 million people in the world do not have clean water close to their home. I think that’s really bad and I wanted to make a game that makes people aware of this problem, and how to fix it. 

Pipeline is a problem solving game with the aim of teaching players about the global issue of water poverty, and what can be done to help communities who don't have access to clean water.

In Pipeline you will help a virtual community to flourish by turning dirty water into clean drinkable water. A pipe represents a simplified version of all the water available to the community, it is the focus point of the game. The water running through the pipe starts off very dirty and full of germs. People are drinking the water, but they get sick. Your job is to improve the water supply and make people well. You earn tokens whenever somebody takes a drink – the healthier they are after drinking the water, the more tokens you get.
