After another decade of inaction, the governments of the world wake up to a planet in chaos. The first impacts of climate change, population growth, resource over-exploitation and species loss have struck and a global organization has been created to respond. You are that response.

Will you help the planet or will you be an agent of destruction?!

Fate of the World is a nail-biting set of scenarios covering the next 200 years. At the heart of the game are 10 ‘Masterplans’ where you call the shots for all people including ‘Apocalypse’ where the goal is to raise the planet’s temperature to a lethal temperature; ‘Lifeboat’ where the goal is to save only yourself while abandoning everyone else to whatever catastrophes await them; and ‘Utopia’ where you can try to build a perfect society while battling population growth.

Fate of the World is brought to you by the award-winning Red Redemption team, developers of the highly successful ‘Climate Challenge’ game played by over 1 million players and receiving global press coverage, and Klaude Thomas AAA veteran games producer of ‘Battlestations: Midway’.

    I watched several detailed/lengthy Fate of the World game sessions on YouTube to understand it better. This game is produced by the same team that created BBC Climate Challenge, a game played by over 1 million people. Some general concepts (electronic policy cards on a timeline) are the same, but this game is significantly more sophisticated and graphical. Instead of leading Europe, you are in charge of the entire globe with 12 major regions… and more types of policy cards to play: long term, political, environmental, energy, technology, and general welfare. Paying attention to news is a major factor for identifying/solving world problems, as well as, maintaining political popularity and stability. There is a Dr. Apocalypse mode that challenges you to destroy the world as rapidly as possible through bad policies, whilst still remaining popular, at least somewhere.

    An excellent game that depicts a world on the edge of climate oblivion, strikingly similar to the world today. It is a good mixture of fantasy and reality, as the energy and climate situation is modeled off of real-world metrics, but fantastic in the options available. A little too difficult at times and difficult to get the hang of, the game is still a must play.
