So, there's a new video game in development - Thoreau's Walden.
I'm torn about this -- one part of me is intrigued, after seeing the video promo (link here). I love the soothing music, the idea of hearing/seeing quotes from Walden in a new way. But the other part of me is a bit horrified at the notion of entering a "fake" nature that's computerized. I mean, isn't that completely defeating the purpose of Walden? Sitting indoors, in our pajamas with a joystick, staring at a screen? And not experiencing actual nature with our own senses, for ourselves?
Heh. Wonder what Thoreau would think.
