Apple Design Award Finalist in the Social Impact category! Battle climate change, shape policies, and survive extreme events. Now introducing Hardcore mode!

Research cutting-edge technologies, enact policies, protect ecosystems, and modernize industry to cut down carbon emissions. Manage your resources well and you might survive.

Will you favor industrial reforms, nature conservation or people initiatives? There are many ways to solve climate change and reduce pollution. But saving the planet is not an easy task. The more carbon emissions you produce the more extreme events you will have to deal with.

You have to balance the power-generating industry, social reforms, ecological policies and scientific endeavors. Will you transition from fossil fuels as fast as possible? Or will you focus on carbon capture technologies first? Experiment with new strategies and don’t be afraid to start again.


Game cards represent inventions, laws, social advancements, or industries - each designed on the basis of real-world climate science. In addition, partially randomized world events occur, forcing you to adapt your strategy. Gradually unlock new cards in the game encyclopedia and chart your path towards a new future.


The world of Beecarbonize reacts to your actions. More emissions mean more floods or heatwaves, investing in nuclear power raises the risk of a nuclear incident, and so on. Learn more with each run and you might overcome environmental catastrophes, social unrest, and even avert the end of life on earth.

Beecarbonize is a strategic challenge that lets you experience phenomena shaping our everyday lives hands-on. Just how many seasons can you last?

We are introducing Hardcore mode, the ultimate challenge in Beecarbonize for experienced players. In Hardcore mode you will face the harsh reality of climate change. Can you defy the odds and save the planet even in this extreme scenario?

The game was developed in cooperation with leading climate experts from NGO People in Need as a part of the 1Planet4All project financed by the European Union.

I’m Obsessed (Atmospheric major here)

This game is a little tricky at first, but WOW I have VERY much enjoyed the replay-ability of this game! After defeating it (even through its 5+ different endings) I craved more from this game and so I have challenged myself! I have beaten this game by using ONLY fossil fuels as a source of power, and in a different scenario, I beat this game without the help of the environment- with this, I think that you all could implement a “challenge mode” or “disaster-scenario” with tougher mechanics. Despite this- amazing game with an AMAZING message and educational foundation to it! This game has exceeded my expectations for an entertaining method to increase discussion about climate change! I hope that this picks up in popularity and I see huge potential in this! Thank you so much to the developers from the bottom of my heart as a determined and excited atmospheric scientist and climate change enthusiast who appreciates a very well done and perfectly designed game like this!

Worth playing

This was a nice little game that I enjoyed quite a bit. It was difficult at first, until I realized what I was actually supposed to do. The tutorial did a decent job of teaching the basic controls, but isn’t great at telling you what your actually supposed to be doing.

But after a few games I understood the actual goal, and haven’t lost a game sense. Basically, you are wanting to get a hold of one of five special golden cards (upgrade cards with a star enough). Once you get one, you win.

You lose if too many disasters happen at once or people starve.

Just make sure you’re producing money faster than people, and try to avoid any cards that increase carbon production, and pretty soon you can negate or completely eliminate carbon production entirely, and from there it’s a cake walk to victory.

Give it a try, it’s a relaxing little time killer that doesn’t force in app purchases or ads down your throat (I’ve seen none of either). Nor does it feel ‘preachy’ even though the game’s main purpose is obviously to try and make people think about their carbon footprint more.
