Fate of the World made its US debut today as part of Gaming the Future: Connecting Innovation & Education, a national press conference and interactive science exhibition in Asheville, North Carolina. This global strategy game allows players to save the world from the effects of climate change in a simulated format. It is the latest in the catalogue from Red Redemption LTD, a UK-based serious game developer.
Participating in the program were Gobion Rowlands, Red Redemption’s Chairman/Co-Founder and Games for Change Board member, Asi Burak, Co-President of Games for Change and Scott Hausman, Director of the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association (NOAA)‘s National Climatic Data Center. (See the press release for a full list of speakers.)
