IBM: CityOne

Published on .

IBM recently launched CityOne, an online community building game that takes a few cues from Will Wright's SimCity, but with an eye toward smarter, responsible urban development. The game challenges would be civic leaders to revitalize a metropolis by managing sectors in energy, business, water and retail via various tech solutions and by getting input from consultants.

Unlike SimCity, however, the game starts with a fully developed city, and players have to fix what's already gone wrong. The goal is to maximize its business profits, environmental conditions and citizen happiness.

Check out more about the game here and play it here.
