• Play & Learn series [Play and Learn 2.0: the trees prevent seeing the forest (2008)]

    Play and Learn 2.0: the trees prevent seeing the forest (2008) is 
    a video game that changed the content of a book called "Manual de 
    Educación Formal" (Manual of Formal Behavior) into a ludic battlefield 
    where the spectator played to destroy the book content and symbols, or 
    be destroyed by these.
    
    The "Manual de Educación Formal" was printed in Cuba by educational 
    institutions from 1973 to 2000. Its main purpose was modeling the 
    behavior of children and young people in the communist society, making 
    special emphasis in the concept of the "new man".
