Story levels will be educational, meaning each one will be a different topic or idea in environmental issues/sustainability —> user can choose between plethora of topics, and each level is a different one
  • Progress bar = shows user's growth and learning over time
  • Short survey at the beginning to ask what the person is interested in regarding environmental issues to see what they should start learning
  • List of tasks/involvement opportunities at the end of the levels to act as a sort of "reward" or "end result" for the user
  • Community aspect to compete with others = user can invite friends or compete with other strangers to see who can make more progress
