Evolution: Hatari


Evolution: Hatari

Evolution: HATARI is the working title of a new mobile game that takes place in East Africa in the 1950s. The idea is to depict the adventures and exciting experiences of animal catchers who at the time caught big game in east African pastures and steppes of all kind for many zoos in the world.

The story will be told through the eyes of a 12 year old child who grows up in a family, from the western world, among animal catchers. The child is alien to this world and is afraid of many situations. The game character is either a boy or girl so both genders can easily identify themselves.

 

Storyboard (Planned)

At an early stage of the game the animal catchers observe an accident where a Massai is injured severely or threatened by a wild animal; during the attempt to rescue him the group of animal catchers disperse and Nemo/Rosa gets lost in the wilderness.
The animal catchers manage to rescue and provide medical care to the Massai. At the same time some Massai find the frightened child. Among the Massai is another child who is roughly the same age.

The Massai take Nemo/Rosa to his/her home (a small group of Lodges in the steppes) and also find the injured member of their tribe. Everyone is happy that their long believed lost soul is rescued.

This marks the beginning of a friendship between the two children. Samir/Shani tells Nemo/Rosa everything about life in the steppes, especially about wildlife - but also the traditions, customs, the way of life and self-preservation of the Massai. At the same time Nemo/Rosa brings knowledge of the world of the white people to the Massai.
This exchange of knowledge gives the children an advantage over the adults, thus they can help them again and again and prevent errors or correct their actions.
There are dangerous, funny or just entertaining situations in the game while catching animals. It is always helpful utilizing the children’s knowledge to master certain situations.

Throughout the game it becomes clear that the adults’ actions change the environment. The children influence the adults with the help of the knowledge gained from other cultures. The adults evolve from animal hunters to game wardens / rangers. The Massai learn how to live with the intruders in their tribal area.
