Specifications

The game was specifically developed for the World Bank Competition, using a wide amount of its datasets.
Combining data visualization with game environment.
In order to smooth the loading time, we developed in parallel a tool to load and pre-parse our requests to the WB API.
The sets listed below are compressed and loaded as a 200k zip file and could be used for a mobile version.
