The environmental damages that occurs in the earth currently is becoming very serious. Degradated community concern makes the environmental condition get worse. For example, serious flood happen every year in Jakarta and the local government is still looking for the solution to solve this problem. On the other hand, some citizens still have a bad habit in throwing trash and garbage into rivers and lakes. This led to the overflow of rivers and the disability of the river to hold the water in high capacity. There are several ways to make people figure out the environmental problem more serious. One of those ways is developing and utilizing the computer games. By using games, there are possibilities for everyone to learn the environmental preservation while they use their free time to play games. It is an alternative way to promote and increase the awareness of importance to protect the environment. In this paper, the strategy to bring the idea of environmental preservation into a game will be discussed. The hard part to realize the idea is keeping the game still fun for the players but is still able to stimulate the players to learn and understand the message in the game. As the result, the public awareness to have a better environment will increase and they are willing to act to keep the environment.
