Carbon Warfare is the strategy game that lets players destroy the Earth by pushing humans to generate mass carbon emissions, raise the global temperature, and ignite catastrophes that could wipe-out the largest cities on earth. Beware, as the global populace is not so naive - hopeful Earth destroyers must plan a strategy carefully to manipulate the media for persuading public opinion as well as adapt to political and environmental changes until destruction comes! 

Gilles Langourieux, CEO of Virtuos, said: “We wanted to deliver a game that provokes greater social awareness around the threats and consequences of global warming to our planet if we don’t change fast enough. Carbon Warfare is a fresh take on delivering this message through an immersive and engaging gaming experience, so we’re excited to see how players react.”

The game features:
•    Stunning visuals of the Earth heating-up and facing various disasters
•    Unleash varying catastrophes that could destroy the Earth by triggering domino effects, including earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, wildfires, draught diseases and more
•    Invest in wide array of profitable and carbon intensive industries, such as oil, auto manufacturing, housing developments, and more
•    Reality-based events to provide a deep level of simulation
•    Several different potential scenarios with three difficulty levels each to explore
•    Various strategy combinations to win the game

With an underlying scientific climate equation created by environmental economist Dr. Yoram Bauman, players are sure to experience hours of entertainment in a provocative and satirical, yet realistically-modeled simulation genre.
