Can you imagine an online game that helps you learn about the history and culture of Rochester? One that turns your play into support for local charities? That encourages you to collaborate with others around the city, to read the newspaper and listen to public broadcasting, and  to visit interesting sites around the city? It may sound impossible...but RIT, the Democrat & Chronicle, and WXXI don't think it is!
