Award-winning screen writer and Dr Who author David Bishop to script Fate of the World

09 September 2010 - Indie developers Red Redemption are excited to announce that David Bishop, award-winning screen writer, Dr Who author and former editor of cult UK comics 2000AD and Judge Dredd Magazine, is writing the script for upcoming PC/Mac strategy title Fate of the World.

Fate of the World is a global strategy game that puts the whole world in the player's hands. Players will have to decide how the world will respond to rising temperatures, heaving populations, dwindling resources, crumbling ecosystems and brave opportunities.

"I'm thrilled to be writing the script for this innovative game," says David Bishop. "It's not often you get to work on a project that's got such a powerful message embedded in its narrative fabric, yet also offers you the chance to destroy the world in dozens of different ways!"

"A game with so many narrative outcomes as Fate of the World presents a real challenge for writers. David is such an intelligent, witty and versatile writer and we couldn't have imagined a better fit," said Ian Roberts, Creative Director of Red Redemption.

Fate of the World goes on pre-order sale and beta download on 29th October 2010 from
