Worm Composting and watch the worms turn waste into rich compost.
Launched in 2019, Epic MegaGrants is a $100 million (USD) program to accelerate the work of talented artists and developers using Unreal Engine or enhancing the open source 3D graphics ecosystem.
“I’m thrilled that Epic Games sees the potential of the Dirtgirlworld game. The Epic MegaGrant will help our team explore and produce an innovative way to teach young people the importance of composting using a fun colony of Earthy superheroes said Miroma Project Factory General Manager Kat Robinson.
The Dirtgirlworld game concept will focus on gardening and composting using key characters from the Emmy Award-winning children’s television series Dirtgirlworld.
The show’s creator, Cate McQuillen of Mememe Productions, says “dirtgirlworld has always been about connecting kids with nature, inspiration and fun. Play that leads to confident action is one of our secret weapons to growing a generation of kids who like to get out and get dirty. Disrupting screen time with green time speaks perfectly to the core of the alpha generation. We are thrilled to receive an Epic MegaGrant and team up with Miroma Project Factory to create this epic composting and gardening game.
The game is slated for release in late 2022.
Dirtgirlworld is a celebration of the outdoors, taking kids into a world where the real and the unreal collide. Dirtgirl grows awesome tomatoes, knows the names of clouds, drives a big orange tractor, and has a garden full of friends.
