Combating Earth's Demise

It is very likely that you've heard that the earth's demise may be in the year 2112, and that there is a super computer " Web Bot " that predicts this data by collecting data found on the internet. Well this is a concept and game design concept I hop

It is very likely that you've heard that the earth's demise may be in the year 2012, and that there is a super computer " Web Bot " that predicts this data by collecting data found on the internet.

Well this is a concept and game design concept I hope will combat what that computer thinks. I have no control over the Mayan calendar clock or what Nostradamus predicted, but I do have control over what is input to the internet.

Much like the television show "Lost", I will be entering a numeric code in an attempt to alter the doomsday supercomputer's calculations.

How will this work in a game?... It's pretty simple actually... A player is given the sight to see the end of the world and has the ability to alter it. And it is the players task to do so through various means. Including but not limited to resetting the Mayan clock, finding Nostradamus's hidden writings and altering the "Web Bot" information.

Let the changing of future events commence...

In the year 2010 I buy the earth 335 years additional lifespan

Year 2447, Year 2448, Year 2449, Year 2450, Year 2451, Year 2452

In the year 2452 I buy the earth yet another 36 additional years of lifespan

In the Year 2445 AD my computer wanted me to reboot, possibly an attempt to disrupt my attempts. But it could also mean something significant occurring between the Years of 2445 AD, and 2446 AD.
