New Game Takes on Global Warming

UK developer Red Redemption is finishing up work on a global strategy game for the PC that will have players attempting to solve a variety of world crises, including climate change, over population and an under abundance of food.

Fate of the World is set in the year 2020, and will have players serve as the president of the Global Environmental Organization, described in the New York Times as a “fictional group with the ability to dictate economic, environmental and social policies around the world,” or, as a Red Redemption developer labeled it, “a U.N. with teeth.”

Routes to saving the world could include overthrowing wayward governments, adding “contraceptives to the water supplies of nations resistant to birth control,” and even releasing a “a genetically engineered virus to crash the world population.”

A further description offers, “As the years progress, resources dwindle, temperatures climb and ecosystems around the world crumble, raising the stakes.”

Those who pre-order the game now will be among the first to receive access to Fate of the World’s beta.

Thanks Stuart!

    The game puts you in control of a new international organisation which gets funded by the various regions to tackle climate change (In this vision of the future climate change has been accepted as a man-made problem (or at the very least made worse by the actions of man). Using this money you fund various projects to carry out the scenarios goal.

    You can however get chuck out of say North Africa if they dislike you too much (after a few turns they let you have another shot at fixing their problems but without your guidance they go to pot).

    climate change, over population and an under abundance of food.

    All three are myths and lies. The human population is nowhere near running out of room to live. The Entire earths population could fit within the borders of the Continental US fairly comfortable with plenty of room elswhere to grow the food we need.

    Speaking of food. We are not going to run out at all. Grain is easy to grow and feeds people rather well. We could produce grain at far greater rates if the US government was not preventing farmers from growing what they want and in the quantities they want.

    Climate Changes is the biggest myth of them all. The scientific community is pretty well divided on whether the earth is warming or not and those that believe it is are divided on whether it is man made or not.

     This sounds like an entire suite of conspiracy theories all wrapped up in one little game.  Not the Global Warming thing, but the whole overbearing world order and induced sterility thing.

    can I make 2 points (no flame wars please Im just saying ok?)

    as for being no where near over populated when would you like us to start doing something about it? after when people are suffering from it?. people are slow and selfish as a race think of how long it will take to stop the pupulation from rising and then ask if no where near is still too soon.

    same sort of thing for climate change yeah we cant be sure its us but if it is us if we dont act now we are pretty much screwed over for a LOOONG time. if its not … well we might waste some money trying to change something we had nothing to do with but being wrong and doing nothing has far worse results besides many of the fixes are about cleaning up our waste and some interesting technlogies things we should be looking into anyway regardless of climate change.

    anyway I dont want to start an argument over this so sorry about the above.
