Reminds me of Railroad Tycoon II, where the final mission was to create a railroad network across Antarctica, since global warming had turned it into one of the few remaining habitable places on the planet.
Hehe. We're trying to get a 4 year old to watch stuff other than kid cartoons, cat videos, and marble runs. Got in two Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla films last night. The first one and a 90s one. Had to keep a running commentary to keep up with the plot and fast forward through the dull talky bits, but the kid loved them.
Giant robots, dinosaurs, and explosions. Classic family movies.
Edit: And we've taught him to say 'Godzilla' instead of 'gesundheit' after people sneeze.
