Something for a rainy day – is a subversive little online game that attempts to simulate the effects of peak oil. You play the oil industry trying to keep up with rising demand. Can you keep ahead of the market without meddling in the Middle East or pillaging the wildernesses of Alaska? Good luck!

    I have been talking about a game like this for years,but don’t have the technical brain to make it real,and finally someone has! I think this will bring a new awareness of the issues to a new group in society 🙂

    I had a bit too much fun playing this game. I didn’t think twice about participating in war, murder and corruption. Should I be worried?
    I got sacked once, precipitated nuclear Armageddon another time, but finally I got it right and retired happily with millions in the bank.
    We seem to have a 1 in 3 chance!

  3. Yes, alarming how easy it is to exploit tiny pixel tribes.
