PowerUp - A New Game About Climate Change

IBM released PowerUp, a game that you can play for free online. In PowerUp the player has to impede an ecologic distruction of a planet named “Helios”.

The game is part of IBM’s TryScience initiative and it is about a planet in near ecological ruin where three missions for solar, wind and water power must be solved before sandstorms, floods or SmogGobs thwart the rescue. IBM stated that the game is meant to engage kids and educators in engineering, energy, and diversity awareness.
