UnEarthed

"UnEarthed" is created by Factory 42 in conjunction with Meta Immersive Learning. Designed to inspire people to respect, protect and restore the planet, these stories are sequences of a multi story adventure, set across the Amazon and the Tongass National Forest, which is being released in 2023. The player is a new research assistant, following ‘The Professor’ - the world’s leading biodiversity expert - to gather research and learn about biodiversity. Guiding throughout is the Ecobot, Hazzi, a droid created by the Professor, voiced by Richard Ayoade (Pixar’s ‘Soul’, Disney +’s ‘The Mandalorian’).
