> What is Ways to Die?
Ways to Die is a mobile application for Windows Phone that can help you predict how you will leave thise world based on climate-related data for your neighborhood. The app retrieves climate data and predictions from NASA for the period of 1950 to 2099 (1). The way the data is presented is interactive, fast and with an easy-to-use interface, and users can share their way to die on Facebook.
Everybody can use it!
> Our Aim
This project aims at effectively engaging people and decision makers around the world in order to improve their behavior and their impact on climate change.
> How do we achieve our aim with this app?
We created this app including a gaming flow that more easily engages users and helps to raise awareness in them. In addition, the data source used for this friendly application is reliable and refreshed constantly by NASA.
Below are some screenshots displaying the gaming flow of the application.
