February 15, 2008 (Computerworld) IBM is hoping that its new multiplayer online game could inspire kids to work to save the planet while falling in love with math and science.
PowerUp is a 3-D virtual world that challenges players to save the planet Helios from ecological disaster, explained Stanley Litow, vice president of corporate citizenship and corporate affairs at IBM. The game, which can be played alone or in groups, features a planet in near ecological ruin where three missions for solar, wind and water power must be solved before sandstorms, floods or SmogGobs overtake the planet. To do that, players need to become virtual engineers who create energy-saving technologies.
