By Implication's Wildfire recently won at the Game Design Category of the 2010 Imagine Cup. Designing a game inspired by volunteerism, they focus on the MDG goals as the basis of what you're trying to accomplish in your city (and apparently inspired by Filipino volunteerism after the 2009 Typhoon). Sadly, Windows only (boo!), but the video of gameplay mechanics is giving me idears.
Love the mechanics of play, if hard to tell I'd like the game itself. We talked at work once about a game to teach people organizing and campaigning (part of our job helping build a more progressive Australia) and would kinda love applying these mechanics ideas to that. Hmmm...
