Fate of the World challenges you to manage Earth's dwindling resources in the face of population growth, climate change, natural disasters, political unrest and more.
As the leader of a global governing body, you will oversee the planet's 12 geographical regions and choose to initiate policies on international aid, energy, technological research and so forth. Policy decisions are represented by cards that are played strategically throughout the game in turns.
Your decisions will have repercussions, and part of the gameplay involves how best to approach these situations as they arise. You may find that animals become extinct, for example, or that you may need to "encourage" a regime change in a particular region. Storms, floods, flash fires, and other disasters will influence your decisions as well.
The game spans two centuries of history, from 2020 to 2200, utilizing real-world data for projections and a scientific model designed by Oxford University's Dr. Myles Allen. Can you prevent the Amazon's decline? Will you be able to stop the Antarctic ice shelf from collapsing?
These are but a few of the scenarios you'll encounter, as you view a 3D model of Earth that will display temperature changes, global emissions, population density and more. A number of charts, graphs and news reports will keep you updated on critical information such as unemployment levels, your popularity and similar data.
