A new game called Superstruct, being billed as the world's first massively multiplayer forecasting game was announced today. The game was designed by renowned game designer Jane McGonigal. Superstruct is set in 2019 and begins with fictional findings of a supercomputer that predicts the human species will be extinct in 23 years.

The game revolves around a set of super-threats that represent the collapse of the environment, economy, social risks, and society disruptions. The game is played on forums, blogs, videos, wikis and other online spaces.

"Superstruct is mass collaboration wrapped in a high-stakes, challenging game environment that will appeal to gamers, but also to creative thinkers of all ages and types," said Jane McGonigal, lead game developer at IFTF. "By harnessing the thinking and input of thousands, or millions, of minds, research shows that we can tackle massive problems faster and find tenable solutions."
