Food ForceIf you're concerned about the ills of the world, you most likely are instilling that concern in your children. For that I applaud you. But if your kids are still fascinated by, and spend much of their time playing, shoot-em-up computer games and you're worried about the effect this may be having, check this out.
Food Force is a strategy computer game developed by the UN World Food Programme where players try to feed the starving masses. Even better, the game can be downloaded for FREE at their website, www.food-force.com. How cool is that?! Okay, that would have been a link, but that website is kaput. So I'll just have to throw some in.
-The WFP's story on their own site.
-Watch a Food Force trailer here (QuickTime needed).... although I have QT, and it's not working for me...
-BBC story about Food Force
-Some screenshots from the game (also through BBC)
-More info from playerthree
And all of them point back to the website that's not working to download it, www.food-force.com. This has become a very annoying post. I was looking forward to downloading the game and trying it.
Newsiness aside, cynicism enter the fray...
What sounds worse?
- Ha ha! Smoked him! Did you see?! I blew his head clear off! or
- Mum, I feel so terrible! They died slow horrible deaths because I couldn't distribute the food evenly!
