HELP US BUILD A CORAL CITY
The world's first coral
restoration video game -
with a real life underwater model!
Reef Life is teaming up with Cyan Planet to create the world's first coral city building video game! We are developing a web-based game and app that will allow patrons to build an ocean oasis for coral reef species. Funds generated from the game will deploy a REAL LIFE model of the city out of IntelliReefs nanotechnology to house the ocean’s homeless.
REEF LIFE FOUNDATION & CYAN PLANET ARE PRODUCING THE WORLD'S FIRST CORAL RESTORATION VIDEO GAME

Reef Life Foundation and Cyan Planet are developing a master plan that enables patrons to have a direct impact in reef restoration. We are accomplishing this through a web-based game and app that allows for you the player to direct restoration efforts and deploy IntelliReefs restoration structures in the real world. Cyan Planet will be developing the web-based game and app and concurrently Reef Life will be designing the structure and implementing the real world deployment of coral restoration habitats.
Cyan Planet is an immersive media agency connecting audiences with marine organizations through emotional experiences that spark action for marine conservation. Thanks to immersive technologies like virtual reality, they have the power to let other people fall in love with the ocean the same way they did. They help marine organizations with fundraising, outreach, training, and science communication.
"We are thrilled to work together with Reef Life to create innovative ways to engage people in ocean restoration," says Michal Lovecky, CEO & Creative Director of Cyan Planet. "Everybody should have a safe place to call home, including life in the ocean!"
Funds generated here will go directly to the development and launch of the Coral City video game by Reef Life and Cyan Planet. All proceeds generated by the game itself will translate into the underwater deployment by Reef Life Foundation of a real life model of the cityscape created in the video game. Ongoing revenue from the game will also partially fund the ongoing documentation and monitoring of the new IntelliReefs artificial coral reef. Together, we will live-stream activity on the real life coral city once it is underwater, allowing for game users and the public to watch the coral gardens as they grow and integrate into the surrounding ecosystem.
JOIN THE RACE AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
The ocean is currently experiencing a housing crisis. Decades of degradation on coral reefs have eroded them so much that they have been “flattened”. This means that 3D habitat built by corals has disappeared, along with space for animal homes. Our collaborative venture with Cyan Planet will allow individuals and groups of players to build habitat-enhancing condos on our digital platform. Every year, Reef Life Foundation teams will deploy a real life city-scape based on the underwater world our players have created. This new underwater real estate will be made from biomimicking IntelliReefs to enhance biodiversity, supply much needed food and shelter for vulnerable marine animals, and attract wild coral spawn.
