Many Americans don’t believe in the reality of global climate change. Many polar bears disagree with that conclusion.

Game Over was inspired by a classic children’s game in which players take turns tapping plastic “ice blocks” out of a frame. The game ends when one of the players “breaks the ice”, sending a polar bear game piece plummeting off its ice floe.

The game, with its playing pieces made from the same petroleum we burn as fuel, encapsulates the changes humans are making to the environment.
