The year is 2019, and a report has just come out proving that the Earth's population is likely to suffer catastrophic collapse by the 2040s. Energy costs are rising, a new pandemic called ReDS is devastating the globe, homelessness has reached epic proportions, and the internet has become a miasma of spam that prevents everyone from communicating. Now it's up to you and a few thousand other futurists to save the planet by quickly inventing new social structures that can stop all our civilizational "superthreats" before it's too late. This is just a broad outline of the rewardingly complex plot of a new MMO called Superstruct that the Institute for the Future launched last week.
Sounds fascinating, don't you think?
