ElectroCity is a strategy city building game developed for Genesis Energy, generator and retailer of energy in New Zeland as part of Schoolgen project aimed at raising awareness of renewable energy sources. Game requires balancing city’s growth with its environmental impact, where citizens’ wellbeing is also an important factor. It gives the player an opportunity to experiment with different technologies and ideas about the city development and energy production.

Gameplay

You will be given complete control over a small town in New Zealand. What you do with that town is up to you.

You can build, destroy, or even leave it alone.

You need to balance your city’s growth with its environmental impact.

Your citizens need electricity and jobs, but they also love their clean, green image. So you get to decide whether that forest should be made into a national park or logged and turned into an aluminum smelter.

Context

ElectroCity was developed to increase public awareness – particularly among students – of the basic “common knowledge” of these topics. That is, the general terms and concepts of the industry and the dilemmas that go along with them.
