Global Warning game
Independent software developer Midori has released Global Warning, a new environmental game designed to spread awareness of global warming and the ill effects of man-made pollution on planet Earth. "Global warming and environmental issues have never been so covered in the media. It needs to be talked about," says Midori. "People are beginning to realize that something must be done to help stop the ill effects of pollution and environmental irresponsibility." The game features everyday advice and tips about how players can act in real life to live a more sustainable and green existence. Players aim to stop a dump company from setting up an immense landfill by choosing strategic, earth-friendly behavior "cards." Results of player choices direct the impact on finances, morale, and health which ultimately affect whether players survive. Global Warning is priced at $10, with educational licenses available for $100. The game requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
