The Hollywood Reporter, um, reports that Harrison Ford has joined forces with game studio Talkie and Conversion International to produce a new eco-friendly Facebook game. Titled Ecotopia, the new game will promote green living through virtual city building. The source article describes the game as follows:
"In this eco-friendly game, players begin with a dirty, uninhabitable environment and must generate resources by completing in-game missions. Resources are then used to develop a sustainable city that players can customize to create their own utopia. Players can also connect with their Facebook friends, sending gifts to each other and visiting neighboring maps to perform helpful actions. Each month, new villains will be introduced to an ongoing story line that players will battle against to fight for a clean environment."
Will it be fun or will it just be another Facebook game request to ignore? We'll soon find out when the game launches this spring. Click here for the full THR article with more details and quotes from Harrison Ford.
Thanks to our good friend Justin L. for the heads up!
