A downloadable game for Windows
In Crisis Theory you play as the spirit of capitalism, as described by the Marxist model of accumulation. Your singular goal is profit. But beware, contradictions abound, and you will have to use every tool at your disposal to avoid falling into crisis!

For a more detailed, but still very clear explanation of the model in this game I'd recommend David Harvey's lecture on the subject (which was a very strong influence on the game's design): http://davidharvey.org/2008/09/capital-class-13/. In fact, that whole course is a pretty great introduction: http://davidharvey.org/reading-capital/
