Climate Change and Games

March 8, 2011

I’ve been looking at the Climate Change game, Fate of the World (an area of interest for me) and so was plaeased to find a summary of the games out there on the blog ClimateProgress:

Global warming games” or “climate change games” show players how their personal choices affect the health of the environment. The games correlate certain behaviors with measures of environmental harm, such as carbon dioxide output, water usage, or energy consumption. The gameplay may vary but the goal is typically the same — to inform players about climate change and what they can do to stop it.

I have a few ideas for games/projects on this issue – though some of my inspiration is around games with a bit more post-apocalyptic-ness in them as well as strategy games around resource management.
