Gaming Concept Points The Finger At Climate Deniers [Future Of Gaming]
Climate Trail is a Gaming for Good submission that plays like the classic 'Oregon Trail' but lets players follow the ‘money trail’ tied to the dissemination of false data.
PSFK recently challenged top creative agencies from around the globe to come up with concepts that address issues put forth by The Climate Reality Project. Participants in the Gaming For Good challenge were encouraged to leverage trends identified in PSFK’s Future Of Gaming report to create potential solutions.
Climate Trail was a shortlisted entry submitted by creative agency Zemoga that is located in New York City and Bogota.
Climate Trail is a game that lets players follow the ‘money trail’ tied to the dissemination of false data. Similar in style to the classic game Oregon Trail, Climate Trail is text-based. The goal is to reach the year 2036 with a healthy and liveable community. At the start of Climate Trail, each player is given a leadership role in a community that has set levels of renewable resources, atmospheric conditions and other indicators of climate health.
