Games are often played to escape a boring daily reality, but they can also teach us to take control over the land as farmers do. As a farm director you work in a gamified environment where you plant and harvest your crops with the help of a console. And with that, you also control your drone and tractor. Gone are the days of failed harvests and wasted raw materials. Welcome to Farmville 2.0!
HUBOT: Meet the Farm Director
What is your view on the coronavirus?
Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.Comment
