You don't have to be a young city planner, architect, or designer to enjoy the new city-planning game Betaville. Betaville is an online multiplayer game that lets players completely redesign the city of NYC how they see fit.

The city redesign aspect is fun and all, but Betaville's true value lies in getting young designers' ideas off of their web pages and into a realistic 3D environment. Betaville connects designers with architects and architects with city-planners to help speed up the process of urban renewal and design.
