It seems I haven’t been the only one raving about SimCity being great in every possible aspect; The OLPC (One Laptop per Child) initiative has gotten a generous donation by EA; the original (aka ‘Classic’, aka ’1.0′) SimCity, for use on all these cheap laptops in developing countries. In another cool move;
the GPL open source code will soon be released under the name “Micropolis”
I think this is a very good move from EA; although the game is dated, it’s still a very useful and educational game. It was quite inspiring for me in my younger years as well.
