Climate Change Video Games come of Age | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

There are games that look specifically at the health issues (such as Climate Health Impact by The Wellcome Trust and Playgen) and games that put the player in the position of trying to persuade the world’s countries to act together (Fate of the World). But there are also games that use the changed world as a narrative setting to explore what that shared future might be, exploring climate change both as creative inspiration and as gameplay subject matter. The example of this I’m going to look at, and how the science has informed the creative content, is the game ‘Brink‘.
