Project Description

Animal Rescue Team | 動物拯救隊

Industrial collaborator People on Board Social Enterprise Limited is committed to work with different groups and companies in the community to design and produce board games with Hong Kong’s unique subjectivity. It also practices its corporate responsibilities, pursuing the goal of job creation, encouraging innovation and promote social responsibility. The board game ‘Animal Rescue Team’, a collaboration with design freshmasonry Alex, is created for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). It aims to deepen the player’s understanding of SPCA’s work through the game, and to cultivate the player’s attention to and care for animals.

Alex Poon and People on Board Social Enterprise Limited jointly designed the gameplay to integrate the message of adopting (and not abandoning) pets and animals. The game interface and chess pieces feature Alex’s colourful and elaborate illustrations. Players need to use different tool cards in the game to save the animals and find a foster family for them. The player wins by arranging the most adopters for the animals. The game has an approachable graphic presentation that makes it easier for players to receive messages embedded within the game, as well as to enrich the knowledge of both the collaborator and design freshmasonry.
