A Video Game Thoreau Might Play

What would you expect from a video game inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s sojourn in the woods?

The game was developed by the Game Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California. Lab Director Tracy Fullerton explains why she thinks Thoreau might have liked the game.
