FoodPlanet is an app where the player must challenge and guess the country of origin for various typical food dishes, drinks, utensils, machinery or ingredients.
Acrosslimits has developed a new social game within the Europeana Food and Drink project, which is funded by the European Commission under the ICT Policy Support Programme as part of the Competiveness and Innovation Framework Programme.
The developers have met with the finest chefs, restaurants, museums and food producers to bring the best recipes and collections to the table. The concept is simple: the Food Planet is a free and addictive app where one will challenge other players to guess the country of origin of different foods, drinks, utensils, machinery or ingredients. It’s a great way of widening one’s knowledge about different countries and their typical dishes. The game can be played by any player of any age, and if you think it’s easy, try guessing where ‘Placki Ziemniaczane’ or ‘Bigilla’ comes from!
This social game is available for download on Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phones. If you wish you can also access this game from your computer by visiting the official Facebook page or the project website.
Being a fun yet an educational game, one will be able to have access to:
- Traditional recipes.
- Fun and interesting facts.
- Reward players with many achievements and unlocking of different badges.
- Leaderboards that refreshes every week with a chance to win prizes.
- Share and upload your favourite traditional dishes from across the world!
- Two play mode: guest mode or full-view mode.
The game contains a collection of content that can be found on the Europeana Portal (www.europeana.eu). Europeana is a multi-lingual online collection of digitized items from European museums, libraries, archives and multi-media collections, with procedures for content providers aimed at keeping our digital heritage alive. The social game is just one of the many exciting products from the Europeana Food and Drink project which is funded by the European Union.
