Social impact gaming indie developer Red Redemption is pleased to announce the global English language edition of their PC game called FATE OF THE WORLD.
In the USA, Fate of the World will make its first public presentation before a panel of distinguished national scientists and leading developers of serious games and gaming technologies titled “Gaming the Future”.
Dr. Otis Brown, Director of the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites in Asheville, North Carolina, says: “The use of real data and models provides an excellent introduction to the complexities of balancing global energy needs with available resources.”
Fate of the World is a dramatic global strategy game covering the next two centuries, from 2020 to 2200, in which the player must find a way to protect Earth’s ever-depleting resources and climate whilst reconciling the needs of a growing world population who demand more food, power, and living space. Time is running out.
Having secured the very best in creative gaming talent with music from critically acclaimed composer Richard Jacques (Mass Effect, Alice in Wonderland and James Bond: Blood Stone) and writing by award-winning screen writer David Bishop (Doctor Who, 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Magazine), the game has already been highly praised. The game has four challenging missions with over 40 hours of compelling gameplay covering 12 regions and steeped in the latest climate science:
1. Rise of Africa: No other region has so much to lose or so much to gain.
2. Oil Crisis: Mankind stands at the brink of two disasters: the specter of Peak Oil alongside that of climate change. Can you transition society from oil-dependency to a sustainable energy solution without causing major energy shortages or destroying the environment?
3. 3 Degrees: Our world is rapidly changing. Our nations have agreed they must avoid global warming exceeding 2 degrees Celsius but their emissions targets mean that the world is on course to miss this goal and by 2020 the challenge to avoid global disaster.
4. Dr. Apocalypse: Saving the world is easy! There is a game where the super-villain is a hero. You have to try and raise the planet’s temperature to a dangerous level and gather all power to yourself! Funny, but not for me.
