Yasno is a provider of electricity, gas, and energy efficiency solutions.
We think that, like us, you've used their website mostly to find out when the lights are due to go off again.
But what if you could regulate the outage schedule yourself?
Unfortunately, not in real life, but at least in a game.
Yasno has developed a Ukrenergo dispatcher simulator where you can try yourself as an operator of an electricity distribution system.
«Nowadays, even when the electricity is hardly ever cut off, there are those who check the schedules every morning out of habit. To make this story less routine, we decided to launch a simulation game and give each of our customers the opportunity to try on the profession of a distribution system operator dispatcher. To do this, you need to keep the lights on in the houses as long as possible. Of course, it will not be easy: the game is based on real events, so we need to take into account power cuts, local accidents, and handling customer complaints», said CEO Serhii Kovalenko.
The game is available even if your Internet connection is not very stable, because it is made in a fairly simple and recognizable pixel art style, the graphics of which are not very demanding on devices and network connectivity.
So, if you enter the game and it has time to load, you will be able to continue playing it anyway.
The goal of the game is quite simple: to score as many points as possible by distributing the electrical voltage between the houses and thus switching the lights.
At each level, the game becomes gradually more difficult, and the number of residential buildings increases.
The game is available on Yasno's website, on the same page as the blackout schedules.
