Surviving Extinction is an educational learning adventure that takes you on a journey through time as you choose to take on the roles of different animals and visually explore the environmental and biological changes that occurred from 350 million-years-ago to the present. You step through 15 different prehistoric time periods and discover 10 modern-day expedition sites in an interactive 360° choose-your-own-adventure style adaptive experience. You must decide which group of animals to follow as their traits change in relation to environmental pressures, ecological niche changes, new species interactions, and key mass extinctions. The interactive experience allows you to explore how certain evolutionary traits may have been beneficial for species survival, solve challenges, and attempt to build a path to the modern day while avoiding deadly predators and most of all, surviving extinction.
