Matt DesLauriers (Produced by National Film Board of Canada)


Created by generative artist Matt DesLauriers, and produced by the National Film Board of Canada, WAYFINDER is an experimental, browser-based mobile/desktop game inviting users to help restore a damaged ecosystem through exploration, play, and poetic verse. The calming, contemplative gameplay is symbolic of the cause-and-effect relationship humans have with nature, and the experience underscores our role in mitigating the effects of climate change through action and a greater appreciation of our natural world.
