It's Like Gold, Only Liquidy: Quest For Oil


Oil! The fossilized organic materials on which our civilisation is critically dependent - that does seem pretty weird when you take a step back to consider it, right? - Oil! It's in the ground, and if you find it then the organisation for which you work will likely issue very large dividends to its shareholders! One such company is Maersk, Danish mega-conglomerate, who have promoted the fine activity of sucking black ooze out of nature with a videogame. What better way to educate? It's called Quest For Oil, and in it you can analyse findings and drill and so forth. For oil, I mean.

Fancy website, eh browser fans?

Looks pretty full-on, right? Well it is and it isn't. It's certainly forthright in its edutainmental thrust, which is that drilling for oil is not only important, but also important. Everyone like ships and helicopters, too, so that's a plus.

Games are awesome.
