The Path More Taken: Up Hill And Down Dale

A good walk you can spoil

I've been playing about with The Path More Taken [official site] this morning. It's a little game about designing a path through a map that will most appeal to your group of visitors for the day.

You can see who's going to show up in the bottom right and try to tweak the path accordingly to rack up points. Apparently kids love peering at the beavers you find near the water while parents are a bit wary. Conversely, parents adore information signs while the kids object to being reminded of school.

On one trip a hunter got cross with me because I somehow blocked his shot of a rabbit while a tourist was annoyed that a sign was in his way as he tried to take pictures.

STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS SIGNAGE

Out of spite I think I will walk everyone through as many lakes and over as many hills and near as many rotting leaf piles as possible.

I am bad at tourism management.
