Description

Wonder Village is a Facebook learning game with the goal of transforming a economically challenged, rural village into a thriving utopia. Through the help of real community leaders, called village gurus, players can learn about collaboration, farming, new geographic locations and business. Like with many other games, Wonder Village is quest based, but here the quests are to establish a farmer's market, harvest crops, build a grain mill, drill wells for inhabitants and livestock will have access to clean drinking water, and so forth.

The game is meant to help younger audiences understand what it takes to keep a village running and build civic responsibility. Players get to design how their avatar looks. The tasks players perform are dictated by the amount of energy use. Most tasks use one unit of energy. This number regenerates every 5 minutes or so. If this is too long to wait, more energy can be purchased with in game cash accumulated through various accomplishments, or with real world money. When using real world money to purchase in-game cash, these proceeds go to Digital Green for on the ground assistance to real villages in impoverished areas. In addition, energy can be completely regenerated by leveling up. Leveling up occurs when a number to goals are reached.
