Oiligarchy – The game!

by Shaun Chamberlin on November 10th, 2008

Oilpeakalypse Now

Despite the cute hypothesis that in doing so I risk damning the human race to eternal underachievement, I’m going out on a limb today and encouraging computer gaming.

I fancy the entertainment value of Oiligarchy might just do as much to shift the cultural stories around peak oil as a hundred carefully-crafted essays. It’s free, easy, doesn’t take long to play through and it might just raise a smile or two! Give it a go below the cut.

Edit – over 1.5 million plays in the first month since launch!

(you may need to wait a minute or so for the game to load – it will appear below)

Kudos to La Molleindustria for the design

    gas prices would steadily go up and the supply dwindle and the saudis like to increase their profit margin;”-
