It's Not Easy Being Green

GIN
7 December 2011
  • Excerpt: It's about time that a game came out that really makes you think about the world, and ways to try and save it from some terrible fates. Fate of the World: Tipping Point is it. It's all based on the research of Professor Myles Allen of Oxford University, and yes, it's so real at times that it's...

  • Summary: Fate of the World is simultaneously one of the more interesting and inaccessible games of recent times. One might say it's not even much of a game at all. What it most definitely is, however, is a very complex global policy simulator in which your task is to save the world from environmental...

  • Summary: Fate of the World: Tipping Point is a sort-of expansion pack for the original .  By “sort-of expansion pack” I mean that the basic premise of the game, the core mechanics and pretty much the entire experience are unchanged from the original.

  • Excerpt: Simulation games always seem like a simple proposition. They let us control a habitat in any fashion we choose. In exchange, we give up interaction. You’re an overlord. You tilt and influence, but you never ARE the people in the games.

  • Excerpt: Developer Red Redemption’s Fate of the World: Tipping Point (henceforth “Fateâ€ÂÂ�) seems rather like Frankenstein’s monster, with individually appealing elements grafted together in an ill-fitted fashion.
  • Pros: + Aesthetic elements, + Nuanced political message, + Climate model with excellent pedigree
  • Cons: Muddled interface, Difficulty

Gamer Limit
1 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The world doesn’t end in 2012, at least that is not the check out date according to Fate of the World: Tipping Point . Also, there is no fugitive asteroid coming to claim us all. According to the game, the world will most likely suffer a slow, agonizing death full of drought, famine and civil unrest...

Review: Fate of the World

Crispy Gamer
1 June 2011
  • Excerpt: After playing around with it for a while I’ve come to the conclusion that whoever the target audience is for Fate of the World , I’m sure not one of them.  The sequel to BBC Climate Challenge, Fate of the World is essentially a global climate change simulator.

  • Excerpt: A few months ago, I wrote a preview for this title. In it, I stated that it could become a very good tool to educate people on the issues of climate change, and that it demonstrates the effects that climate change has on our world in a progressive style.
