- Unique puzzle and simulation mechanics
- Insights into the toxic realities of e-Waste
- An abundance of levels
- Awesome pixels and gamedesign by Jamo Games
The player takes on the role of Arun, a villager who came to the big city with his wife and child to try his luck. Arun gets work in Chopra’s e-waste scrapyard, a small backyard factory where a dozen workers recycle electronic components. In order to feed his family, Arun has to recycle as many boards as possible, while toxic fumes will also poison him at the same time. The gameplay is based on puzzles that gets increasingly complex, where the player has to break the board apart in the most efficient manner. Through a shop system the player can also purchase items that increase his ability to pick components, protect his health and help him to deal with health issues caused by the work. The game can be only be won by hard work: after a particular sum is reached, Arun can afford to retire from his recycling job and look for healthier opportunities.
Burn the Boards also aims at tangible change and is developed in close collaboration with the German NGO Action for World Solidarity. Please support their efforts with a donation! http://www.aswnet.de/projekte/indien/burntheboards.html
