Neocolonialism by Subaltern Games

Looks like it’s close to a release. A global economic sim based on a Marxist critique of contemporary capitalist society. As an educator I’m highly interested in the fate of so-called “educational” games, and since the novel Island in the Net I’ve been desperately wishing that somebody created a replica of the game WorldRun contained therein. I don’t have my computer now so I can’t try out the free alpha. Anybody taken a look at this?

I’ve been too preoccupied to dabble in the alpha, but the UI may be getting a graphical overhaul in the near future if the latest Kickstarter update is any indication. The dev just got back from a few conferences where he was making presentations on educational gaming, so all of that might interest you if you didn’t already know about it.
