What a magnificent blast from

What a magnificent blast from the past, thank you so much! That Mac Challenger game has to take the all-time award for Most Inappropriate Use of National Tragedy in a Game.

I was intrigued by the games about energy resources, since that's the focus of our work at IDT Energy. I agree wholeheartedly with your assertion that "real world issues can definitely make for intellectually compelling and potentially affective games" and you've got me thinking about how we might use such a game in our work.

But of course, any such games would have to have those fantastic retro graphics if they're going to satisfy my gaming urges.
