Can real world data be used to engage people in a playful way, that ultimately informs and inspires change?
Blossom Bristol is a phone based game that encourages people to plant virtual crops in any part of Bristol and watch as they flourish or fail depending on real environmental factors such as the city's air quality, water quality, weather and temperature. The player's real-life activities also feed into their success in the game, with credits and rewards being offered when players choose to shop locally or at a Farmer's Market.
