Title: International resource saving concept
A game system for existing computer and game console systems will seek to enhance players’ knowledge and raise their consciousness about ecology by motivating people to explore energy saving although they might not have any other incentive. The game will provide up-to-date facts and figures from the power grid and establish optimal utilization patterns. Users will be able to determine their own energy consumption; the game will test this for sustainability via a point system. The goal is to simulate ideal consumer behavior and to acquaint players with climate protection.
