Fate of the World: Tipping Point


Fate of the World: Tipping Point review

PC Gamer at

This is the way the world ends: not with a bang but with a protracted series of bangs, accompanied by famines, screaming winds, droughts, tsunamis and your lynching at the hands of a mob.

That’s according to this tweaked, expanded re-release of 2011’s global suicide strategy simulation and its DLC campaigns. A complex web of depressing data sets (global temperatures, unemployment, infant mortality rates and so on) have been crunched together to form a Megazord of human misery. Viewed at a global level, your purpose is to carefully usher humanity through these trying times, as icecaps melt, Russia erupts into civil war, Japan becomes a swamp and – oh God, why is Africa on fire again?

Fate of the World: Tipping Point makes saving the world easier, is out now

Fate of the World is a strategy game about saving the world from climate change. You'll have to deal with the threat of rising sea levels, spiralling carbon emissions, species extinction, political uprising, flash fires and more over the course of 200 years. RPS note that a new version, Tipping Point, is out now. As well as some interface tweaks, new scenarios and the much needed addition of an easy mode, Tipping Point includes the Denial, Migration and Extras DLC packs. It's all bundled together and available through Steam, Gamersgate and from the Fate of the World site. You can find out more in our Fate of the World review.
