Could the Guerilla Gardening video game inspire covert gardening of neglected public spaces in real life?
Just as a blank wall is an invitation for graffiti, unused, unkempt city and privately owned property is an invitation for guerilla gardening.
The growing trend in making cement-crowded public spaces beautiful has guerrilla gardeners arming themselves with spades and seeds and planting anywhere that needs some green—and often under the cover of night. Their work can pop up anywhere from the space among unused railroad tracks to the cracks in a sidewalk.
And like any good real-life trend, there’s a a virtual answer. That’s where the Guerilla Gardening Game comes in. Still in its prototype stages, the game is “about overthrowing despots and growing plants where you shouldn’t,” according to the developers, Spooky Squid.
The objective is to bring cheer to citizens by planting in public spaces. But, you’ll have to attract the citizens to the space, do the planting and avoid the police.
While the game looks a little lo-fi, it does seem like a non-violent way to get a video game fix.
It’s also inspiring. If you could bring that much cheer to virtual people in the virtual world, imagine what a plant or two could do in your real-life city.
