Abstract: This work aims to promote environmental awareness in children, as a philosophy of life, to promote a culture of care for the ecosystem in their family and social environment. From the field of video games, we wanted to achieve the proposed objective, for this we started from the design document, based on Rogers' model. Prototypes were developed, levels were designed, resources were placed in the scenario, physics and mechanics were tested. The agile Scrum methodology and the Unity video game engine with C# scripts were considered for the development. The video game consists of a superhero of nature with three levels, was generated in its initial phase to be tested with the target audience. The results obtained from a control group of children from 7 to 10 years old are presented. A user experience evaluation method was applied by inspection to obtain results related to usability heuristics, Gestalt principles, interactions, and perception of aesthetics.
