Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) has launched Smokey’s Scouts, a forest-friendly mobile matching game for kids, teens, and adults, in an effort to increase wildfire safety and prevention nationwide.
Smokey’s Scouts fosters crucial wildfire prevention awareness in a fun, engaging match 3 game design where players take on the role of aspiring scouts. Players must aid Smokey Bear and his group of helpful animal scouts in preventing wildfires by removing fire hazards along their hike.
During gameplay, players learn about the history of Smokey Bear history along with how to prevent unwanted wildfires, collecting badges and bear tokens (game currency) along the way to better assist scouts in their training. Nature lovers will recognize many famous backdrops in the game; campsite environments and biomes sprinkled throughout the game were inspired by national forests and parks across the country.
Join the fun today! Smokey’s Scouts is available for free download via Apple App Store and Google Play.
