…and we are all encouraged to be a part of the demise of mankind for a few months starting on October 6th. I suggest you join the facebook group which will keep you up to date with events. Feed your experiences into your blog/s, find wiki’s tracking events then contribute and of course post flickr and YouTube response videos. Also subscribe to the SuperStruct Global Extinction Awareness System YouTube channel.
We are all in this together!
To start the event off lets fast forward to 2019 and see what is happening through the eyes of GEAS (Global Extinction Awareness System), then immerse yourself in the fiction, the game, the social media entertainment event of the year…I hope!

Superstruct Superthreat: Generation Exile
Superstruct Superthreat: Outlaw Planet
Superstruct Superthreat: Quarantine
Superstruct Superthreat: Ravenous
Q: What is Superstruct?
A: Superstruct is the world’s first massively multiplayer forecasting game. By playing the game, you’ll help us chronicle the world of 2019–and imagine how we might solve the problems we’ll face. Because this is about more than just envisioning the future. It’s about making the future, inventing new ways to organize the human race and augment our collective human potential.
Q: What does “superstruct” mean?
Su`per`struct´ v. t. 1.To build over or upon another structure; to erect upon a foundation.
Superstructing is what humans do. We build new structures on old structures. We build media on top of language and communication networks. We build communities on top of family structures. We build corporations on top of platforms for manufacturing, marketing, and distribution. Superstructing has allowed us to survive in the past and it will help us survive the super-threats.
Q: How do I play Superstruct?
A: Superstruct is played on forums, blogs, videos, wikis, and other familiar online spaces. We show you the world as it might look in 2019. You show us what it’s like to live there. Bring what you know and who you know, and we’ll all figure out how to make 2019 a world we want to live in.
