Post Fort McMurray: The Game? "we oiligarchy now"
http://fortmcmoney.com/en

It's a game documentary about Fort McMurray, one of the fastest developing cities in the world, based on a massive oil-based industrial complex.

The trailer showcases that there is going to be a game based on Fort McMurray, with Four Game Session.
[One of them Starts soon, Nov. ~21st? 25th?, 2013...]

I can't get the feeling that someone took my suggestion that we should use gamer-based cognitive engines for more important things...
Please tell me this isn't like a game of Democracy 3, in which we control Fort McMurray...

TL;DR: Are they letting gamers control a Major City? Or what?

That question may be a tad naïve.

Shh, don't tell the Americans that we have pipelines and technology. They might still think we live in igloos!

Anyway, I don't feel like I should go and give some company free labor.

Too bad, you already categorized images of lake beds, and solved cancer, you've already sold untold amounts of money of proccessing-time to computer network clusters... or otherwise free labour [like censuses, community service, voting, etc etc].

Anyways, you are doing free civil/political/industrial/economic labour, since you are dealing with multiple interests [oil/civil/aboriginal/environmental].

It'd be interesting if gamers could actually run a city better than a multiparty, representative democracy could.

EVE manages to have quite a few governments operating fairly well. This is a very interesting idea, I'm curious to see the end result.
