First DARPA asked for help destroying enemy submarines. Now the Office of Naval Research is asking for help. MMOWGLI (Massive Multiplayer Online WarGame Leveraging the Internet) is a simulation game just like DARPA’s but this time they want to stop pirates.

The game takes place in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa. Some of the scenarios include hostage rescue, pirate attacks, and raiding pirate strongholds. If you want you can even play as a pirate. ONR is looking for “out of the box” thinking. The more creative you can be for either side the better they can plan for real life attacks.

The game will release on the 16th.
