Remember that Sim City-ish climate change game the BBC had on its website a while back? Where, for a change, you had to save the world from climate change instead of killing aliens with Warthogs and other implements? Well, I met up today with its makers Red Redemption, and it looks - fingers crossed, sponsors permitting - we're going to create an ethical eating game with them for New Consumer.
I have no more details for now, but suffice to say it'll look lovely, involve shopping dilemmas surrounding organic, Fairtrade and local grub, and will be coming to a website near you soon. It definitely won't include Stand by Me-type eating challenges, where you down pies until you puke. If you've got ideas for dilemmas you'd like us to wrestle with in the game, email me or post in the comments. [Photo: Soil Association]
