Are you going to release a Mac or iPhone version of Fate of the World?Edit

Yes, we will release a Mac version of Fate of the World. We would love to release a version of Fate of the World for iPhone and iPad, but are not presently working on it (we're still busy improving the main game!) We will post any updates about that for you on our website.


What are the minimum requirements for playing the Fate of the World?Edit

The technical specifications are listed on our website here


How do I get the latest version of the game?Edit

We will post the release notes of every update on our official forum here. If you have a Steam version of the game, the Steam client will keep Fate of the World up to date for you.

If you bought it from our website (through our partner BMT), you can use the original download link you received when ordering the game to get the latest version. You will know you are downloading the latest version when the version number in the name of the file you are downloading matches the one listed on our forums.

If you bought it from one of our other distributors like Direct2Drive, Gamersgate.com or Impulse, check the version number listed in the Fate of the World product page of the distributor's website. As soon as the version number matches the one listed in our release notes, you can download the latest version. Please note that depending on the distributor, it can take from a few hours to a few days for the update to appear.

For all version except the Steam one, you will need to uninstall the previous version of the game before installing the latest one. All your save files and settings will be preserved during this process.


Does the game have DRM, and, if so, in what form?Edit

Each license you buy is for the game to be installed on one computer at a time. If you change computer, you can install the game on your new computer. So there is no limit on how many times you can install the game, but you should use only one install at a time. Each licence you buy allows you to use one copy of the game. We can provide multi-user keys - please send an email to info@red-redemption.com to ask about bulk orders.

No internet connection is ever required, but if one is available the key is registered so that we know it has been used.


Is the game suitable for children to play?Edit

Fate of the World is not designed as a children's game, but should be suitable for almost anyone over the age of 12.


If I buy the game on your site, will I need to buy it again to play it on Steam?Edit

No! Enter your registration key on this page to receive your Steam activation key. Just select "Activate a product on Steam..." from the "+ Add a game" menu in the lower left of the Steam window and follow the prompts.

How do I give you my feedback about Fate of the World?Edit

For gameplay and usability feedback, please email us at support@red-redemption.com .

I just saved baby pandas. Where can I brag?Edit

If you’re itching to tell someone about what you accomplished in the game, just join the ongoing conversation on Facebook. And, if you killed the pandas, we want to hear about that too (you might need a virtual shoulder to cry on).

More important, join us on Facebook to learn more about the greater implications of climate change, share interesting articles about the ice caps melting, or just connect with other people who worry about the fate of our world.


I’m a teacher. How can I get Fate of the world for my class?Edit

We can provide multi-user keys if you want to use the game to teach your class about climate change. Just send an email to info@red-redemption.com and ask about bulk orders.
