Dogs Unleashed

Dogs Unleashed - A guide for dogs and their owners
Team Name: 
Dogs Unleashed

The Sunshine Coast is a great place to have a dog. The region is known for its wonderful beaches, parks, and other outdoor recreational activities. Unfortunately, not all of these activities are welcoming to our four-legged friends. Indeed, dog owners face stiff fines if they're not abiding by local laws and regulations. "Dogs Unleashed" aims to provide local, and visiting dog owners with the resources they need to make the most of their time on the Sunshine Coast with the fine, furry friends.

Grow Bananas. Avoid Disaster.


Banana Baron is a retro-inspired educational game aimed at children, to promote awareness of environmental issues and the importance of being prepared for emergencies such as floods, fires and cyclones.

You play as the 'Banana Baron' who runs a series of Banana farms across QLD, and you must balance the challenges of running a profitable business in the context of climate challenges with the goal of limiting your environmental impact.
