Don't know what happened to the video link, or how to fix it.   So here it is again:

Here's a game teaching world environmentalism: "PRECIPICE: Beyond a certain point there is no return". From the blurb provided:

"The simulation intends to make vivid some of the future scenarios developed by Global EESE. The experience takes place in a 3D environment where the player is presented with a familiar scene set in the present day and a future scene set in 2032. The future scenario manifests the worst outcomes of the scenarios.   Within the 3D environment are a series of characters with whom the player can interact. Through these conversation the player learns of the characters situations and perspectives on the environment. As the conversations progress the player makes certain decisions, influencing the characters to be more aware of the environment and potential risks.  If the player successfully convinces the characters to be more aware they create a positive change in the future. The player can move between the future and the present as they complete puzzles and conversations to see the effects of their choices. When the game is completed a montage depicting the future sums up the consequences of the players choices."
