Entrant 2020

James Patton


In a future dystopia where corporations are king, forge a company that will dominate the globe. Control the media, manipulate social norms, cause riots, crash stock markets, topple governments.

Spinnortality takes inspiration from real-world corporate scandals, the creeping influence of capital in politics, the erosion of media independence and the influence of tech. There are in-game events inspired by the Social Media echo-chamber effect, China's dystopian Sesame Credit scheme, the rise of fake news and many more.

• Achieve immortality with cutting edge tech.
• Bribe politicians, spread fake news, rig elections.
• Research horrific products; market them so they're irresistible.
• Sell products such as metacritic for friendships, sentient social media profiles and an 'auto-career' service.
• Pursue world-shaping agendas.
• Exploit specific cultures with targeted marketing.
• Use media control to warp culture or run PR campaigns.
