  • Summary: It's a frustrating game...but it's worth giving it a try! You have to rescue the world as a leader of a natural agency. The soundtrack is outstanding, the complexity is more than deep, so you can take a long time to play your turns. But I can understand: for those who don't want to think in a game and don't like serious topics it's cruel!

  • Summary: A mildly educational board-game for people who think the solution to problems caused by technology and overpopulation lies in developing more technology that coincidentally helps humans breed even faster. . Fate of The World: Tipping Point is a turn-based game which focuses on climate change and its effect on the economy by putting the player at the head of "GEO" which is a sort of global government and environmental protection agency rolled into one and yes, that's as...

  • Summary: Lets get the bad out of the way first. The UI is not good. I mean sure, making a useable UI to represent the factors that go into earths economy, politics, energy, enviornment, population...it's a daunting task, but the overwhelming amount of information, the limited feedback of the consequences of your actions (Barring having a few PHds in a few fields), and the lack of meaningful representations in a few areas (Which is a more eco-friendly outlook, Green, Altruistic,...

  • Summary: Fate of the World: Tipping Point is hard to review, as the game is very deep and complex. While very well made, I fear it will have limited appeal. FOTW:TP is a detailed Earth Sim, where as the head of a UN like group, you are tasked with solving major world problems like the economy, environment, global health, and more.

  • Summary: A fun and incredibly difficult game to get used to. Missions are comprised of scenarios and set goals you need to meet, but you're plagued with tons of things in the way. You might need to raise the human development index throughout the world, but have earthquakes, rebellions, rising sea levels and rising temperatures. The game is really simply, and takes only 5 minutes to learn how to play, but it will take hours to master. A fun and very educational game.
