We've got a great volunteer team working with actual seed money to make a gamified program to revolutionize how people take action on sustainability work to improve their own homes, lives, communities and the world. It's like LEED, OK Cupid, and Girl Scouts all rolled up with game design.We're working on a lot of cool pieces. If you are interested in helping with setting up digital support architecture (from Wikis to Discourse forums), creating simple flash animations, developing outreach…See More

Hi Jacob! Thanks for the comment!  :)

Yes, I'm making a video game about permaculture. It's a journey through sustainable agriculture in a simple, complete and fun way, packed with a great plot and several challenges! ;)

It's an educational and fun strategy game with a lot of challenges. And the player will have the ability to design the farm in an organic, fluid and natural way, breaking the square patterns in other farm games.

I think it's the first time permaculture is explored in such a complex way in the game world...

But most of all, we are still in the first stages so many things can change... One thing is sure, it will be impossible to teach permaculture  in depth, as we imagined earlier. It would be way to complex to program and play... But i think it will be a good introduction and promotion of the subject.

 Anyway, I'll post when I have more updates!  :)
