The negative effects of climate change become more visible every day, yet deniers and a sluggish political process stymie any action that would actually prepare us for the consequences.
If you’ve become frustrated with the lack of action on climate change, and think that you could come up with a better plan for saving the world, now’s your chance to prove it.
Indie development company Red Redemption recently released Fate of the World, a global strategy game for PC (the Mac version is still under development) that challenges players to save the world from global warming.
In Fate of the World you’re in charge of the GEO, a global organization whose mission is to stop climate change, manage economic development and global energy resources, tackle political turmoil, feed a growing population and save the polar bear… along with hundreds of other things (Crisp Green).
In the game, you, the player, must fine a way to balance the needs of the planet with the needs of an ever-growing world population, which demands increasing amounts of food, power, and living space.
Will you help the whole planet or will you be an agent of destruction? You might find that the choice is harder than you think.
