Fate of the World is a global strategy game that puts our future in your hands. Decide how the world will respond to rising temperatures, heaving populations, dwindling resources, crumbling ecosystems and brave opportunities.
During the summer of 2010 I spent some time in Oxford at Red Redemption working on the strategy game Fate Of The World. Fate of the World is a PC strategy game that simulates the real social and environmental impact of global climate change over the next 200 years. I am happy to report that Fate Of The World has been awarded Best Artistic Response at the Climate Week Awards.
Best Artistic Response WINNER: Red Redemption – Fate of the World. The computer game Fate of the World requires you to manage the earth’s food, water, energy and forests, while dealing with a growing population and threats from floods and extreme weather. Red Redemption raised £1 million for this follow-up to their BBC Climate Challenge. Their team has producers, writers and composers whose previous credits include James Bond and Dr Who. Released in February 2011, the game’s scenario spans the next two centuries and puts all of our futures in your hands. It uses the latest scientific data and the team included Oxford University climate scientist Myles Allen. The New York Times said “While ‘Fate of the World’ arms you with environmental data and renewable energy policies rather than grenades and rocket launchers, the result is still compelling”.
