Neocolonialism is an online multiplayer game for 3-6 players about global financial ruin. Play as a capitalist and extract as much money from the world as possible‚ but ideally, more than your buddies are extracting. It is a game of world domination that does not have nukes, but does have austerity packages. It is not a serious game, but it is a sarcastic game. In a world full of ostensibly topical games, this one pretty darn topical. If you play it, you will buy and sell Bonds, vote in Parliament, divest into Swiss Bank Accounts, and screw over people.
