The cost of life


I found this excellent ‘game’ today. I say ‘game’ because actually it is a bit traumatic. You have a little family who you need to keep alive, feed and educate. And it is really hard. They kept dying on me. It is sponsored by unicef and if has a very serious point about how hard life is in the developing world – and just when you think you are doing ok disaster strikes. Have a go and tell me how you do. I was beginning to thing it was rigged, but it turns out you can do okay: All alive, 2577 goud and 6 diplomas – beat that!

  1. So it turns out that the trick is volunteering for the NGO which results in the building of community centre which improves your families education and health while they earn a living…

  2. This game was sent round my office a while ago. I had a qick play and my family didn’t fair too well. I, like you Mark, found it eye-opening to the struggle of life in a developing country.
