Let’s Explore Geography! Canadian Commodities Trader Simulation Exercise

cover (7)

The primary gameplay is driving around Canada in a truck trading commodities. Find somewhere that sells low, somewhere else that buys high and then trade. That’s pretty much it as far as I can see.

Is there a meta game I’m missing? I’m not sure because it’s pretty painful to play this game – the format really doesn’t seem to be designed for this type of thing. It has been developed on Desmos – something I’m not at all familiar with. Also, and I hesitate to say this, but it’s kind of questionable whether the IFcomp is the right place for this work.

I wish it would only present me with the options for sale for the commodities I have on my truck. I also wish there was some way of it storing the prices of all the various commodities at places I visit rather than having to write them down. You also can’t buy more than one palette at once. Repeatedly buying one palette at a time gets old fast.

As a trading simulator it’s pretty basic. As a user interface, it doesn’t really work. As an IF game in the comp : 2/10
