|In Dragon Dad, your strict dragon father has chores for you. Spoiler alert: no matter how well you do, he'll never be satisfied. Complete each minigame as fast as you can, but they're going to get harder and harder until you leave your father disappointed.
Some of the minigames promote high-impact personal actions players can do to be more sustainable, like biking instead of driving. These minigames are intermixed with minigames that are "just for fun." A pilot study suggests that Dragon Dad makes players feel as if their actions can affect the environment more, which would lead to greater willingness to behave sustainably.
Dragon Dad is currently in development. A prototype is currently available to demo.
