Venture Arctic lets players control Mother Nature

Venture Arctic for Mac

Macgamestore and Pocketwatch games have released Venture Arctic, a sim-style game allowing users to manage their own Arctic ecosystem. Players try to protect Arctic animals, including Polar Bears and Orcas. But unlike similar "Tycoon" games, Venture Arctic has no people -- users manage only an ecosystem using natural events such as climate. The game comes with 12 "Forces of Nature" and four difficulty modes, including "Climate Change," "Deforestation" and "Extinction." Users basically get to "play God," by controlling Nature. The game features 20 unique animal species, cheat codes, a "sandbox-style kids mode," and it keeps track of high scores.

Venture Arctic requires a 1GHz Mac running Mac OS X 10.3 or later with at least 512MB RAM. The game is available for download at the Macgamestore for $20.

    Worse than Textbooks

    Something tells me that this game isn't going to sell to individual families- perhaps some oddity schools, but not smart people.

    I've got to say this is the most flagrant pieces of environmental extremist propaganda directed at kids to date. Oh, for the days of useful educational games like oregon/amazon/yukon trail...

    As I said, don't expect this one to sell.
