America 2049 Review
You, the player, are an agent of the Council on American Heritage. Tasked with the capture of a presumed terrorist, you are sent into high-risk situations that challenge you to ask: What if? How close have we already come to America 2049? How can we work together—in real life—to build a better future?
America 2049 is the first Facebook game to integrate the social networking platform with many other resources, online and off: multimedia and interactive features, historical artifacts, clues planted across the Internet and real-life events at leading cultural institutions nationwide.
The game features appearances by Harold Perrineau (LOST), Victor Garber (Alias), Cherry Jones (24), Anthony Rapp (Rent), and Margaret Cho (Notorious C.H.O.), who generously donated their time to help put a face on complex issues. America 2049 was conceived and produced by Breakthrough (www.breakthrough.tv), a global human rights organization that uses the power of pop culture to advance equality, dignity, and justice.
You will be presented with a short tutorial, the basics of the game involve clicking in some areas and finding clues, pieces of information, to solve some kind of puzzle.
Once you gather all the clues, you’ll be able to solve the puzzle and move to the next level.
Energy is limited so, you have to work around the “social” aspect of the game, inviting friends , to get more recharges, which can be done by sending recharge pack to friends.
You can also trade 10 capsules for one recharge.(you find capsules along the game).
A new mission will be unlocked every week on Facebook.
This seems to be a very promising and interesting game.
