Demonstration of “Crisis Theory” by David Cribb

Crisis Theory is a new educational indie video game by the developer David Cribb. In Cribb’s words:

In Crisis Theory you play as the spirit of capitalism, as described by the Marxist model of accumulation. Your singular goal is profit. But beware, contradictions abound, and you will have to use every tool at your disposal to avoid falling into crisis!

Earlier this month I recorded a demonstration “Let’s Play” video of the game, and explained some of the concepts that it tries to teach the player. For those new to the ideas of Marxist political economy this video may serve as a useful introduction.

The video can be found here.
