The Landscape Game, the brainchild of CIFOR scientist Herry Purnomo, is currently out of stock. Over 1000 games have been sold to universities, NGOs and teaching centers around the world. The game mirrors reality in that to maximize wealth, players race to invest in land while negotiating competing interests, profits and costs to the environment.
The game is now really set to make an impact with an online version launched in December 2014 and an app on its way. Already, government officials in the US and Argentina have shown interest in using and adapting the game for public education and land management decision making, and the download numbers are growing.
