Planet Warrior is the first digital educational game created by Clujtoronic. The main character’s mission is to save the planet by collecting as much recyclable plastic as possible, while battling various polluting monsters and saving animals. The players receive rewards that they can exchange for weapons or power upgrades. The game has two goals: while being an entertaining experience, it also raises awareness on ecological issues and educates the player on the different types of plastic waste that can be recycled.

Planet Warrior is the result of the Virtual Heroes ideathon organised in May 2021 by the French Institute and the German Cultural Center in Cluj-Napoca with the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund, where 12 teachers and 5 mentors developed video game ideas that would promote decision making and critical thinking skills as well as responsible behaviour in teenagers. The winning idea was later turned into a game by local studio Tractor, Set, Go!.

The game can be downloaded for free on AppStore and GooglePlay.

Planet Warrior is based on an idea of the winning team of the Virtual Heroes ideathon, which consisted of Violeta Bran, Teodor-Nicolae Căluian, Oana-Andreea Lefter, and Dana Grațiana Terec.

The game was created by Tractor, Set, Go, with the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund, as part of the project Virtual Heroes developed by Institut français de Roumanie and Goethe-Institut Bucharest.
