You've been appointed CEO of Energium. Your job is to develop a global energy business across four continents by finding oil, gas and alternative energy sources, and turning them into products to sell.
To do well, you must make sure Energium not only turns profits, but is safe and trusted, and delivers long-term value for the business, employees and customers.
You will face many of the challenges that affect energy companies in real life. The better you deal with these challenges - while sticking to your core values - the better you'll do in the game. If your safety, trust or value levels drop too low, or if you run out of money, it’s game over and you’ll have to try again.
The game is set in a fictional world with four continents – Stagnium to the north, Hottoman in the middle, Emergia to the east and Coldlands in the south.
The path you take through the game is for you to decide, but you can follow advice the board will give you as you play. Their first suggestion is to build an oil rig and the rest of an oil value chain - so what are you waiting for?
