As studio head of our independent studio Strange Loop Games I am working to redefine what can be done with educational games. Our current game Eco is a world-survival game where played must make decisions as a group (via laws) to survive in a simulated ecosystem, one which is affected by their every action. We've recently received funding from the Department of Education to make this game a reality.
My blog is also posted at http://www.strangeloopgames.com. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, and on twitter at twitter.com/strangeloopgame
Thanks for reading, and looking forward to your comments.

Alpha 4 build progress! Check out what's coming for our next release: Roads, Vehicles, Items, Tech Tree
Our Alpha 4 build of Eco is making great progress, check out the work below.
Here's our progress on Alpha 4 this week, lots of updates to trees, roads, property, transport, and the minimap!
Check out our progress on property, transport, landscape, and foliage.

It doesn 't, but it 's a step towards it, integrating the fame and the 'product ' of these celebrities/artists into the game so far has been a mostly uni-directional experience, but the article supposes that it will eventually become very interactive.

Great reply Curtiss, agree with you there. I wouldn 't spend any time on the extra features you outlined, you already have a best-in-class product, it 's how you sell to the market that 's the problem or the market itself, but there 's not a lot you can do ...

Great points David, and I think your point of view makes clear that there 's a lot of room in what educational games can be and how they can be used, and a lot of that is not going explored due to a limited definition of what 's expected of ...

The game is called GTA 'FIVE '. I don 't know what you were expecting. And I don 't see how writing a woman in would have changed any of the existential woes you list. r n r nIf it 's innovation you 're looking for, you can find it ...
