Peace Maker: CMU follows SWEAT model

Carnegie Mellon University's Center for Entertainment Technology has announced that it will be developing a game to teach peace in the middle east. "Students Burak, Eric Brown, Eric Keylor, Olive Lin, Tim Sweeney and Victoria Webb, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon faculty, are designing the videogame simulation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which will be available to the public in spring 2006."

The game, Peace Maker, is already receiving substantial press coverage, with a feature also on today's All Things Considered by NPR BBC World Service.
