‘No Pineapple Left Behind’ skewers the American schooling system
As Rockstar Video games’ Bully proved, grade faculty makes for a reasonably fascinating (if painfully underused) setting for video video games, which is why I am intrigued by No PIneapple Left Behind. In it, you are a principal lording over pineapples, ensuring they do amazingly nicely on standardized checks as a result of that is what begets extra funding in your faculty. Drawback is, a variety of elements run the danger of turning your pineapples again into youngsters — and you may’t have that as a result of pineapples excel at taking checks and issues like rote memorization quite than truly studying.
The inherent drawback with youngsters is that they are human and have distractions or pursuits apart from faculty, and what’s extra, they seem to be a danger at reworking the remainder of the pineapples into youngsters like them. In case you could not inform, the sport’s jabbing fairly arduous on the No Youngster Left Behind Act signed into regulation in 2002 that ties faculty funding to check scores. It is in a closed alpha stage proper now (learn: very early), with an open alpha hopefully occurring this spring, based on Motherboard. Oh, and the sport’s truly the product of a instructor. Makes much more sense now, does not it?
