UN Food Aid Game
9:47 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Macologist has noted the recent release of a title sanctioned by the UN, titled Food Force. Meant to promote the World Food Programme, players are set down in a warzone on the fictional island of Sehylan. Once there, players must conduct air surveillance, deliver aid by means of trucks and helicopters, and construct farms.

WFP spokesperson Neil Gallagher noted, "Communicating with children today means using the latest technology. Food Force will generate kid's interest and understanding about hunger, which kills more people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined." Both Mac (198M sea) and PC versions are available as downloads.
Those interested in trying out the title can download it directly from the WFP Food Force site. Macologist notes that folks should drop the .sea file directly into Stuffit in order to avoid starting up Classic mode.
