Game Over for Earth?

A new computer game weaves a mysterious tale of environmental destruction.

“Homesick,” is a story without any dialogue—just a puzzle that gamers need to crack as they wander around a beautiful but devastated world trying to figure out what the heck happened.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the PC game is available for download today. Developed by CG artist Barrett Meeker and NRDC attorney Morgan Wyenn (disclosure), “Homesick” brings an environmental apocalypse to your fingertips. But remember, players, while you’re running around trying to unravel this mystery, there may be some clues tucked into this virtual world that could help us save the real one. Game on.
