Gamers Save the World
Video game developed to clean up the gulf coast oil spill.
The Gulf Coast Oil Spill
Simple video game is developed to piggyback off all video games or be played by itself to use the collective power of all gamers to clean up the worst oil spill in history. Oil cleaning nanobots are dispersed for each player.
Millions of nanobots use the collective intelligence and competitive nature of gamers to bring this tragedy to an end. Gamers have an amazing amount of energy. Millions are now playing and collaborating throughout the world on games that are so complex that a small percentage of their energy could easily help clean up the oil spill. This simple game could be used to purchase extra credits for other games while they are playing. The more oil spill clean up credits you receive the more virtual credit or power you would have in your game of choice. The game could also be played on PCs or smart phones bringing this game to anyone who has an Internet connection.
Gamers Save the World.

i just want to say what a cool idea i think this is. i like the very upfront, structured format you used on this one and on the one about obesity. it’s quite effective.

While this is a fantastic idea and I applaud that there is one flaw. If you know gamers they would demand a sequel to the game once it was completed and thus another disaster would be needed. Could be a bad precident to set.

well, if they win the game, i’m sure a sequel, given our world, will not take long to produce…

Positive input from Greg. I must say this is a break through. Great point Akbar. The game could already be easily modified to clean up the carbon pollution in the air. Kill two birds.
