11th August 2022 – (Hong Kong) Ocean Park is partnering with AiR World Limited to bring alive the Park’s conservation efforts on the startup’s proprietary app game Adventure in Reality (AiR). The brand-new metaverse experience goes live on the AiR app today.
As an essential base for giant panda conservation, the Park’s first metaverse game invites players to share their love for Hong Kong’s giant panda An An, who lived a full life of 35 years till July this year (equivalent to 105 years in human age).
An An needs a virtual animal caretaker!
Adults and kids can now become the Park’s animal caretakers to look after the city’s dearly-missed giant panda in the metaverse. They will learn more about the conservation of giant pandas, a vulnerable species listed on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s red list.
The fun-filled mini games will help players discover more about An An and giant pandas. They can also guess what An An liked to eat and earn hearts and flowers for sending An An into the virtual world to express their gratitude for the countless fond memories.
Enjoy the play time with Ying Ying
Players can unlock a special edition of the game in person by scanning a QR code at Ocean Park’s Amazing Asian Animals, where giant pandas Ying Ying and Le Le call home. Upon scanning, the QR code will reveal activities for players to interact with Ying Ying in the metaverse. We’re sure the personal encounter will melt everyone’s heart!
Traversing the virtual and physical worlds
Beyond completing interesting tasks, collecting game cards, and taking level-up challenges in-app, players will also get a chance to win Ocean Park admission tickets and other awesome rewards as they continue their journey of learning and exploration at the Park.
The collaboration with AiR will further include a variety of Ocean Park gameplays on the app with themes based on the Park’s most iconic elements. They include the Halloween Fest and a limited collection of NFTs featuring the Park’s mascots, Whiskers and Friends.
