Abstract

Empowerment is a game being developed by WPI and FIRST about Energy. The project goal was creation of a sandbox for game physics and GUI exploration. Players can configure electrical power networks using 3D models of generators, consumers, transmission towers and interconnecting power lines. The simulator demonstrates solution for power distribution and game state based upon system parameters and player choices. The simulator is built upon the JMonkey 3 3D engine in Java, yielding a system agnostic, open-source implementation.
