Ayiti: The Cost of Life
I recently found the game Ayiti: The Cost of Life. It was created by UNICEF to illustrate how poverty can greatly interfere with a family's ability to educate their children.

If you figure out how to win, let me know. I haven't been able to beat the system yet.

Edited to add:

I found another game with a similar message: 3rd World Farmer.

3rd World Farmer was more interactive and interesting in my opinion, although I'd suggest trying both games if you have the time and patience to do so.

    I thought so, too. :)

    Did you try both games?

    I'm always fascinated by the third-world farmer. There is more ingenuity in them than is generally given credit for. For instance, I've been amazed by Wendell Berry's observations of Peruvian farmers. I think we have much to learn from their lives, their wisdom, and knowledge.
