Global warming game finds publisher

The cult PC strategy game that lets players save the world from global warming will hit UK shelves, courtesy of Lace Mamba Global.

Fate of the World – developed by Oxford-based studio Red Redemption – will be available to buy from Oxfam stores, too.

The title will initially be released as a 9.99 download from Monday, February 28th on Steam, Direct2Drive and other digital services.

Lace Mamba Global will then release a boxed version on April 29th.

MCV understands that the firm is even looking into producing special eco-friendly packaging for the game.

Fate of the World allows players to run the world from 2020 to 2200 and either save it from global warming or watch it burn.

Gamers will also have to protect 12 regions from a range of disasters such as flash fires, hurricanes and rising sea levels.

Red Redemption produced the game’s climate model with physics experts such as Professor Myles Allen of the University of Oxford. Meanwhile, British composer Richard Jacques – who also produced music for Mass Effect – worked on the score. And Doctor Who screenwriter David Bishop helped pen the game’s story.

The developer previously produced a free-to-play Climate Challenge game for the BBC website.
