Earlier today on Twitter I saw someone post about a Henry David Thoreau video game. Laughing to myself and thinking it wasn't entirely serious, I clicked on the link to discover I was wrong.
The article doesn't have a lot of specific information on the project, but talks about how USC was recently given a $40,000 grant to create a video game based on Walden and Thoreau's time spent living on the lake.
Of all the subjects to create a video game on, this is definitely one of the last ones I would have predicted. It'll definitely be interesting to see it when it comes out.
