Superstruct

SuperStruct

Superstruct is a new massively-multiplayer online game in which players like you will invent the future of our world.

In 2019 the Global Extinction Awareness System (GEAS) has just reported that humanity may face extinction by the year 2042 and people around the world are mobilising to respond (GEAS report available here).

There are five intersecting ‘Superthreats’ which are the main drivers behind this projection, and I will be guiding the community focusing on ameliorating the ‘Power Struggle’ Superthreat (our post-peak oil energy troubles). Join us.

The first videos from each of the five Superthreats are now live on the Superstruct website, so go hear from people across the globe in 2019 who are already facing down the Superthreats that may haunt all our futures.

Two weeks from today the game will be launched by the Institute for the Future. Then it is YOUR turn to tell the story of 2019 and to help invent the future.

PS. You can register on the Superstruct website for a reminder on Monday October 6, 2008 when the game officially launches. The game will run for six weeks, but if you register and complete your survival profile within the first 24 hours of launch, you will officially become one of the Founding Players of Superstruct (an honour that will be forever noted in your Superstruct profile)! So plan to get there early and become the first to make your mark in 2019.
