More humanitarian games: Is this the first one that is not free?
"In the Netherlands, The Red Cross Game encourages online players to engage with a number of virtual public health and safety crises involving first an earthquake in Argentina and then conflict and dislocation in war-torn Zimbabwe. Players who finish these teaser games and want to tackle the next task, a flood in Mexico, need to pay $19.95 to purchase the full version of the game, which functions as both an exercise in consciousness-raising and a fund-raising maneuver. The game was created by I Sioux for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies." (from Osocio )
