How would you cope without having electricity at the flick of a switch? We only realise how much we rely on our energy supply when there is a power cut. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it can cause chaos. Energy Shutdown is a collection of fun arcade-style games that highlight this very real problem. Help to restore power to a city suffering a blackout and deal with the emergencies that have arisen as a consequence, from people stuck in lifts to hospitals with no power. It raises an interesting question - have we become too reliant on electricity? Globally 1 in 4 people have no access to electricity at all, so perhaps we could get some ideas from the way they power their lives.
