In this game your students will band together in small groups to forge a new society in their own image. Amid dire circumstances they will come up with solutions to numerous dilemmas, deal with issues that will stress them both physically and mentally, and interact with a cast of colorful characters, while at the same time cultivating their own sense of beauty to bring a new aesthetic to the depleted world.
