The Polyventure game challenges players to consider environmental concerns with a particular focus on endangered species. Polyventure features a low-polygon art style and combines this with an incredibly introspective ambient setting. It is not a game of action or adventure, but instead fall on ideas of quiet thought. Players are meant to explore vast environments and should take time to take in the majesty of the animals that walk among them.

The idea of conservation is a driving theme in the Polyventure game. Animals and beautiful landscapes will surround the player in a dream-like state. While these images of life surround the game, the animals remain completely still and seems to resemble a museum of sorts. This idea pushes the player to consider a world in which animal life no longer exists and can only be seen in still life images. There is discomfort in this, but as a tool for conservation purposes, this mechanic really drives an agenda.
