Synopsis: The Founder: A Dystopian Business Simulator (06/02/2018)

The Founder is a management simulation video game that takes our world, right after the last bubble burst, and plots out a possible, if exaggerated, trajectory. How is the promise of technology corrupted when businesses' relentlessly growth-oriented and profit-seeking logic plays out to its conclusion? What does progress look like in a world obsessed with growth, as measured only by sheer economic output?

Like any good power-fantasy game, you are at the center of it! The Founder puts players into the shoes of someone who has bought into techno-capitalist logic and lets them loose in a fictional universe. The player will be instrumental in the progression to an unsavory future; a progression which will feel disturbingly rational under the logic of the game. Winning in The Founder means shaping a world in which you are successful - at the expense of almost everyone else.

The Founder: A Dystopian Business Simulator is 1 of 20 randomly selected crowd funding campaigns we selected to receive a grant to finalise their projects.
