The PowerMasters™ Game Series

Overview
The PowerMasters™ series is a family of simulation games that allow players to manage power production in a game environment, utilizing real world data. These mobile app games interact with a patented technology used in smart meter devices installed in homes. The first of the 3 games in the series are based on ancient civilizations. The idea behind the game is to see what would happen if modern day power production was introduced thousands of years ago. Would resources for combustion engines run out? Would green energy sustain a growing population? Would nuclear power be safe? And would fusion power be mastered? These and many other questions can be answered by simulations.

Objective:
The PowerMasters series is designed to educate users on the long-term effects of managing power resources. By simulating ancient cities, game players get to see what would happen by making choices in which forms of power to use to meet the demands of a warrior class population. The smart meter technology can also assist in the education of power consumption, and award players with progress made in the home.

Target Audience:
The Millennial generation is fascinated with video games, and interactive media has been a staple for learning in the 21st century. With population increasing rapidly, and power demands going up drastically due to the reduced power production, and the introduction of mass produced electric cars, Millennials will need to understand the consequences of the choices made for producing power in the future for generations to come.

Benefits:
By presenting the concept of power production in an entertaining way, real world data can be applied so that players know the facts. They can experiment on an ancient civilization to try options for success.

How the Game Works:
An ancient civilization is visited by celestial travelers. These aliens from another galaxy offer your city forms of power in exchange for gold. The game objective is to acquire more gold and power resources to expand your city and its population. Your game starts with a set amount of free gold bars. You can acquire additional gold bars in several ways.

1. Win them through game play.
2. Received them as gifts from other players.
3. Purchase them with real money.
4. Get bonus gold bars from the use of your smart meter device.

When you start the game you will create a small city. Once you’ve set up your infrastructure you are ready for visitors or invaders.

When the first set of alien visitors land, you can open the shop menu to trade gold for power items. In the first level, you will have the option of purchasing steam powered engines. These engines can power your city or your defenses. Power sources can be part of defense equipment or can power the city, in which case they should be protected.

Since you have limited resources at first, you should try to protect your new power sources, so that your enemies don’t raid them. Power allows you to train power soldiers or utilize power workers to build up your city faster. You must provide camps for these workers with adequate power supplies in order for them to be effective. Using gold wisely is the key to succeeding in the game before expanding the city. Without adequate power resources, a larger city is more at risk.

Invaders will come, so you will need to deploy power soldiers when an attack occurs, The Aliens will not interfere with the battles of primitive civilizations. You must use resources effectively as they become available to you to continue to expand your empire. You may suffer loses in battle .in which case you will need to rebuild damages and replenish casualties. If you win battles you will climb to higher levels. Higher levels will allow you to have greater resources, and your enemies will become more challenging.

Why 50 million smart meters still haven’t fixed America’s energy habits

Five years ago came the promise: A great new way of saving money on your energy bills was on its way. An impressive new device called a “smart meter” — a key component of the much touted “smart grid” — would let consumers actually see how much power they’re using in their homes, thus empowering them to change their habits and slash their bills.
