To create our socioeconomic simulation, we started from the proven mechanical model outlined by CityMatCH`s LifeCourse Game. Building on this foundation, we created an immersive and engaging environment using cutting-edge web technologies.
The flat, two-dimensional board has been replaced with a virtual city, replete with towering skyscrapers and streets alive with traffic.
