The Weather and Climate Immersives were part of a larger project, Planet3. Intended to be used as interactive educational material for use in public schools, the idea was to teach middle school children various science subjects in a fun and interactive experience. It was in many ways like an adventure game and an interactive textbook as players would navigate an open area; talking to NPCs, collecting items to aid on their mission, and playing various mini-games before saving the day.
