Playing "Save the Planet": IBM Launches PowerUp Video Game

February 18th, 2008 by  


thumb15_500.jpgCSR Wire has announced IBM’s launch of “PowerUp,” a video game in which players simulate the saving of Planet Helios. The game is targeted to teenagers, or the teenager in all of us:

“The game is part of IBM’s TryScience initiative and [was] launched at Engineer’s Week 2008 opening on February 16 in Washington, D.C. The game, which can be played alone or together, features a planet in near ecological ruin where three exciting missions for solar, wind and water power must be solved before sandstorms, floods or SmogGobs thwart the rescue.”
