Project description: Feed is an outdoor game that uses real-world play through a virtual interface to raise awareness of underlying issues of world hunger. The player plays the role of a food aid worker who collects food donations in well-off countries to help battle hunger in suffering countries.
Along the way, players encounter obstacles that are based on real struggles that food aid workers face. These obstacles include political instability, conflict between regions, and the ability to bring additional aid to a country by giving them agricultural equipment.
