Games from around the world
It seems that we are not alone in thinking that games are a great way of understanding environmental problems. While I was perusing the various country pavilions located across the street from Riocentro, I discovered an interesting game in Japan’s impressive pavilion. This game is more simplistic than the Settlers of a Green Future game we launched on June 19, but attempts to demonstrate the interconnectivity of ecosystems, as well as flora and fauna. Even though they had no English version, I was able to follow along and get the point of the game: removing any block from the ‘ecosystem’ could cause it to collapse.
