bb is a video game which questions the mainstream framing of climate crisis solutions being aimed at individuals versus the lack of corporate onus.  Individual emission levels are dwarfed by the amount of destruction that is being caused by corporate malpractices, yet many green initiatives are aimed at consumers.  Framing the climate crisis as an issue which is the individual’s responsibility is unproductive in reaching sustainable solutions and harmful towards the mental well-being of these individuals.  bb mimics mechanics of a 2D side-scrolling, survival/community-building game.  In bb you play as a child born into the climate crisis where you must negotiate a balance among your own desires, the environment’s needs, and how much responsibility you have the mental fortitude to take on.
