imagine that…
by sheer coincidence, you ended up on an unspoiled, deserted Island. It is covered with green forests full of trees and forest fruit. This is your new home- and there is
no going back to your previous life.
There is no option but to start a new life here on the island. To do so, you can use the island’s natural resources,
such as wood and undergrowth. You can collect fruit, cut
down trees, and develop businesses; for example, you
can set up an ice cream shop or build a swimming pool.
However, cutting the trees involves a risk. Using the island’s wood increases the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which in turns contributes to climate disasters.
The comfort of your life on the island depends on the
financial resources you have gathered. We distinguish
different levels of prosperity. It is up to you to decide
if you want to follow any of the prosperity plans yourself. Some of the achievable goals involve the total well
-being of the whole community inhabiting the island, as
well as the good of the island and its ecological balance.
You decide which of the above goals are the ones you
want to pursue. And you may always come up with a new
one during the game.
