A video gaming convention in Asheville is bringing together game developers and scientists to discuss the future of science-based games. The conference is called Gaming the Future. It will unveil a climate change game called Fate of the World. Gaming the Future spokeswoman Karen Tessier says the convention brings a new industry to western North Carolina.
"Asheville has quite a reputation for art, design, technology, and science. There are several hundred scientists working here. We already have some other gaming companies locating here, which we're quite excited about."
