Crunch, the game for utter bankers
  • Licenced in 5 languages: French, German, Spanish, Italian and Estonian
  • Gameplay actually involves a functioning model of fractional reserve banking (more fun than it sounds)
  • Gameplay also contains the collapse of Capitalism (again, more fun than it sounds)

The Crunch is here! Our financial foundations are crumbling, while our nation's cherished traditions of greed, profit and exploitation are deeply threatened.

As the CEO of a global bank, it is your personal responsibility to do whatever it takes to ensure a comfortable retirement. Call in government bailouts, award yourself bonuses and - when non one's looking - embezzle as much as you can, before it all comes crashing down around you.
