The McDonald's Video Game

There is an amazing online video game called the McDonald's Video Game created by Molleindustria, in which you can run the McDonald's corporation. The game is a parody of the company and you can destroy rain forests, corrupt climatologists and nutritionists, and market to children. It is a blast. If you ignore any aspect of the supply chain you lose as the company goes bankrupt. Here is an explanation of why Molleindustria made the game:

For decades McDonald’s corporation has been heavily criticized for his negative impact on society and environment.There are inevitably some glitches in our activity: rain forest destruction, livelihood losses in the third world, desertification, precarization of working conditions, food poisoning and so on…

Denying all these well founded accusations would be impossible so we decided to create an online game to explain to young people that this is the price to pay in order to preserve our lifestyle.

We’ll continue on our way, with our well-known determination. Join us and have fun with us!
