You think you can do a good job of creating and running your own green city?
Now there’s a chance for you to show it! Try playing Merscom and National
Geographic Games’ Plan It Green.
Here are the system requirements for Windows:
* OS: Windows XP/2000/Vista
* CPU: 600 Mhz
* RAM: 256 MB/512 MB
* DirectX: 6.0
* Hard Drive: 120 MB
Nothing for Macs though. The game was launched during Earth Day 2009. Here’s a description of the game:
“As the Mayor of Greenville, players have the opportunity to create a green city in Plan It Green. As mayor of your hometown, you have vowed to bring about a new green future by changing the ways of the past. You are working with close supporters to restore Greenville to its former glory and beauty. Watch as Greenville transforms before your eyes as you build eco-homes, apply green upgrades, and bring new clean jobs and industry to your hometown!”
My husband played it and thought it was cool. Now that’s saying something since he’s a big-time gamer.
