Did you know that everyone in this world is an Aquaholic? Everyday we use water to do certain things like drinking and bathing. But lately, have you notice that rivers and lakes are drying up? California is in a serious drought and we need to conserve water. Nearly 60% of California is in an exceptional drought, the most severe drought category. To combat this drought, California counties are trying to reduce the use of water by enforcing new laws, however, it seems that these laws are not as effective as they should be.

"I love how I can connect two things that I like together: making a game and bringing awareness to other people. "

Therefore, my team and I came up with a solution and created a game called Aquaholic. It is a simple connect the dots game in which everyone can play. In the game, you have to connect all the dots together in a certain amount of time. While connecting the dots, water will fill up the screen. If you pass the level, the game will increase in difficulty by adding more dots and water fills up faster. If the water reaches its limit, it means game over and it will show a fact about water conservation. This game serves to increase people's awareness about the California drought.
