"Adventure in the Amazon" is a choose-your-own-adventure story that explores the key challenges that are facing the North Rupununi region in the Amazon, and possible solutions to a sustainable future of the rainforest.

The game is created to support the BBC Two series I Bought a Rainforest, and it takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the routes you decide to take. As you navigate through the North Rupununi, the game will build up an idea of how your decisions would have an impact on the future of  the rainforest, and at the end of the game you'll see a future scenario of the rainforest based on your choices.
