Families can learn more about water conservation through a new online game created by Swinburne's Multimedia Design program.

In the style of a pop-up book, the Mission H2O game teaches players how to save water in the home.

It features the Wilson family - Barry Buckets, Barbara Bubbles, Chelsea Sprinkles, Johnny Hydro and nana Flo - who guide players through eight sub-games contained within various parts of their home.

"By playing this animated game, young people can learn about water conservation in a fun way," said multimedia lecturer James Marshall.

The game is the work of 80 third year students and five lecturers from the university's Multimedia Design program and represents more than 18,000 hours of research and development.

Using the latest version of the Flash scripting language and interactive 3D environments, the students have taken just 12 weeks to develop and create the online game.

It has been developed in conjunction with the savewater! ® Alliance and industry partners Computers Now, Swinburne Design Centre and DT Digital. is Australia's leading resource on water conservation
