A downloadable game

Race for the Arctic tells the story of four generations of the fictional Freight family as they race to become a leader in shipping in the Arctic, witnessing the impact of climate catastrophe in the process.

  • The mechanics of the experience are adopted from racing games. 
  • Players are incentivised to travel as fast and as safely as possible through the Arctic in order to receive more points (in the form of money).
  • Although our narrative is fictional, the RFTA game-world is built on real-world research data and expert hypotheses about the future impact of climate catastrophe in the Arctic.
  • The game is a speculative documentary about the future impact of today’s carbon consumption habits if we do not change them.
