Carbon Warfare is the strategy game that lets players destroy the Earth by pushing humans to generate mass carbon emissions, raise the global temperature, and ignite catastrophes that could wipe-out the largest cities on earth. Beware, as the global populace is not so naive - hopeful Earth destroyers must plan a strategy carefully to manipulate the media for persuading public opinion as well as adapt to political and environmental changes until destruction comes! 

Gilles Langourieux, CEO of Virtuos, said: “We wanted to deliver a game that provokes greater social awareness around the threats and consequences of global warming to our planet if we don’t change fast enough. Carbon Warfare is a fresh take on delivering this message through an immersive and engaging gaming experience, so we’re excited to see how players react.”

The game features:
•    Stunning visuals of the Earth heating-up and facing various disasters
•    Unleash varying catastrophes that could destroy the Earth by triggering domino effects, including earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, wildfires, draught diseases and more
•    Invest in wide array of profitable and carbon intensive industries, such as oil, auto manufacturing, housing developments, and more
•    Reality-based events to provide a deep level of simulation
•    Several different potential scenarios with three difficulty levels each to explore
•    Various strategy combinations to win the game

With an underlying scientific climate equation created by environmental economist Dr. Yoram Bauman, players are sure to experience hours of entertainment in a provocative and satirical, yet realistically-modeled simulation genre.

Shanghai, China – November 27th 2015 – Virtuos is thrilled to announce that Virtuos Group is now the world's largest user of Substance Painter, Allegorithmic’s renowned 3D painting software. As part of the partnership between the two companies Virtuos has also successfully produced part of official Substance Database. We began the process 3 years ago by creating a series of internal certificates (such as “Introduction to G4 Shader”) to help structure and facilitate the training of our artists. To aid the transition to PBR, Virtuos deployed the use of Substance Painter on a massive, company wide scale. With this, we ensured that our artists and teams would be ready and armed with the best and most up-to-date training available. As such, we are now able to actively respond to our clients’ needs in the most efficient way possible. To date, Virtuos continues to train artists on other PBR compliant tools to adapt to any existing pipelines.
