Help to fund and shape the game in development - let’s secure our future together

Play2Thrive

Designed to inspire positive actions for our planet and educate about the root causes of the sustainability crisis, every aspect of the game incentivizes shared prosperity. Earning and sharing EWA utility tokens by playing the matches and quests, players benefit from and contribute to an ecological “tokenomy.” You can customize the game—upgrade your character, craft equipment, build habitats, grow biodiversity zones and medicinal gardensand unlock new features. Your EWA can also fund solutions for climate change, biodiversity, thriving communities, social causes, and more. That’s why EWA truly signifies ‘Earth Wise Abundance’ as an exciting advancement that pioneers a new Play2Thrive genre.

Dr. Anneloes Smitsman

Architect of Elowyn: Quest of Time & Founder of EARTHwise

My teenage boys love to play games with their friends, yet few of these games empower them for their future. Worse, most popular video games reinforce the same battle narratives, gameplay dynamics, and win-lose incentives that drive the sustainability crisis and incite wars and violence. 3.6 billion people play video games worldwide, and the majority are youth and young adults. In 2022, I felt a deep call to create a new paradigm game that empowers our younger generations, shifts their consciousness, inspires their passion for the possible, and builds their capacities for a world they can believe in while having fun with their friends. Together we can game-shift our world from collapse to collective thriving."

The Game Mythos

Transforming the Moloch Game of World Destruction

#Play2Thrive

A new civilization is calling, free from control by Moloch—a dangerous force that grew from humanity’s shadow actions and false belief systems long ago. Many have fallen under the hypnotic influence of this force, fuelled by their lust for domination, power, and fortune, as well as their fear for survival. The child sacrifices of long ago are today’s systems of control that subdue the creative spirit and divide our worlds. 

Deeply concerned about the fate of humanity, a team of guardians embarked on a quest to shift humanity’s destiny to a new timeline. They sent their avatars to inspire new ways for us to evolve without constant sacrifices, killings, or violence. Yet, despite their efforts societies continued to grow by Moloch’s rule. Now millennia later the survival of the human race is at stake. 

Moloch's grip on humanity has brought our world to the brink of collapse as many became enslaved to the systems of domination and destructive growth. Earth’s climate systems are tipping, the oceans are dying, and Moloch agents are rising to exploit a world divided by conflict, fear, and greed. Aided by advanced Artificial Intelligence, Moloch’s sinister plot for humanity's endgame is accelerating.

There is hope. The Great Turning has begun. The guardians need your help. The avatars left a series of Keys behind with mythic powers to activate the portals to the New Time. The Elowyn Tree is the secret to the Great Turning. Unfortunately, some of these Keys have fallen into the hands of the Shadow Arcs of Moloch. They are the masters of chaos, ready to exploit our weaknesses and prey on our desires to accomplish their mission. Time is of the essence, but which timeline will you play?

  • Playable characters of team New Time: Aleph the Cosmic Coder, Kairos the Future Wizard, Shakti the Evolutionary Alchemist, Gebo the Pattern Weaver, and Eureka the Story Speller.
  • Playable characters of team Moloch: Arcon the Shadow Coder, Nyx the Shadow Wizard, Loki the Shadow Trickster, Vendra the Shadow Weaver, and Dolos the Shadow Storyteller.

Builds on the Award-Winning Future Humans Books

The game mythos expands the stories of the future humans, which began with our award-winning #1 Amazon bestsellers of the Future Humans Trilogy, written by Dr. Anneloes Smitsman and Dr. Jean Houston. 

Book 1, The Quest of Rose is a Winner of the prestigious 2022 Silver Nautilus Book Award, and book 2, Return of the Avatars is a Winner of the 2023 Gold Nautilus Award for books that profoundly make a difference and inspire positive futures.

Elowyn: Quest of Time expands these stories through a whole new book (and film) series by Anneloes Smitsman.  Offering new characters, future legends, and an immersive story universe for all generations.

Guided by the EARTHwise Constitution for a Planetary Civilization

Our Compass for Game-Shifting World Transformation

On the Solstice day of 21 December 2022, we launched the EARTHwise Constitution for a Planetary Civilization, which opens with Our Promise:

"We, as future ancestors of a planetary civilization, commit to co-creating thrivable worlds and futures with the wisdom of living systems, in partnership with life and our Earth."

The EARTHwise Constitution serves as a new kind of social contract for co-creating a thriving planetary civilization in loving partnership with our Earth.

It is open-source and freely available for you to work with, adjust, and even evolve into a constitution for your life, project, organization, or movement.

It includes a collective vision, evolutionary principles, future archetype codes, unifying values, living systems protocols, and shared commitments for a thriving planetary civilization.

Endorsed by 44+ organizations and thousands of people from around the world.

Serves as an evolutionary framework for collective action. 

This Constitution has been co-created with full appreciation for, and in support of, the myriad of other constitutions, charters, codexes, and covenants that serve a similar purpose. Furthermore, it aligns with and fully endorses the 16 Indigenous Guiding Principles by Four Worlds International Institute, and the  Unitive Narrative that has been drafted by members of the SDG Thought Leaders Synergy Circle of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle
