A game with a mission

 
 

Fall in love with wildlife

Wildverse is created by Internet of Elephants: a group of game geeks, data heads and animal lovers, on a mission to make you fall in love with wildlife. We believe that if we could all look a wild gorilla in the eye, or take a walk through an untouched, lush jungle, we would be more energised to support conservation efforts, and to make changes to our own lifestyles. But not everyone is able to travel to the Congo or Borneo to see these animals in the wild - and that’s probably a good thing. Therefore, we are bringing the wild to you.

Real Animals

To create Wildeverse, we scouted the coolest animals living in the last wild places on earth, and turned them into Augmented Reality game characters. Each of our stars is currently living in the wild. We know their family history and favourite snacks. We know what they do each day, and we know a lot about the challenges they face to get enough food, find their mates, and protect their families.

The cast

We are kicking off the first release of Wildeverse with two great apes: Chilli the gibbon and Fio the orangutan. In the second release you will meet Buka, the lowland gorilla and Aida the chimpanzee. More species will be introduced in the next versions of Wildeverse.

Chilli the white-bearded gibbon

Real conservation work

Wildeverse is not just based on the true stories of animals, but also on the people who are working to protect them. We worked with two organisations on the frontlines of conservation to bring their stories to the world.

 
 
 

Goualougo Triangle Ape Project

Groundbreaking research of gorillas and chimpanzees in one of the ‘last wild places’ on earth. A team of researchers is documenting the natural life of gorillas and chimps to create more effective conservation methods.

Borneo Nature Foundation

BNF works to protect some of the most important areas of tropical rainforest and safeguard the wildlife, environment and indigenous culture on Borneo.

Your attention matters

Wildlife protection will only be a priority to policy makers if enough people take an interest. We want to make wildlife a positive, exciting topic of daily conversation for millions of people currently unconnected to conservation. Your attention matters more than you think!

Join forces in your own community

In the next version of Wildeverse, the app will connect you to people and organisations near you through in-app messages, inviting you to join local nature and conservation activities.

Support the animals and the people who protect them

In the next version of the game, in-app purchases will be activated. A percentage of the profits will go directly to our conservation partners to support the animals featured in the game.
