The 90s game »EcoQuest: The Search for Cetus« immerses players in the role of young environmental activist Adam, who embarks on an exciting and educational journey through the underwater world.
The story revolves around the disappearance of Cetus, a majestic whale that maintains the balance of marine ecosystems. When Adam discovers that Cetus is in great danger, he decides to find the whale and save it.
Players explore various maritime locations, including tropical coral reefs, sunken shipwrecks, and mysterious underwater caves. During his journey, Adam encounters a variety of fascinating marine creatures and interacts with them to solve puzzles and gather information to help him determine Cetus' whereabouts.
As an ecogame, »EcoQuest« encourages players to become aware of how their actions influence the environment and how they can make a positive contribution.
