You are the director of one of the major oil companies, and must lead your company into a future without oil. Peak oil is on the horizon: you are trying to recover the last drops of black gold all around the world to gather the resources needed to invest in new technologies. If you try to emerge victorious from this crisis by normal means, your competitors will use other means, forcing you to get your hands dirty too.

During your turn, you will assign your agents to different actions on the set. If your agents are in the majority of any action location, or you decide to send mercenaries to rescue them, they crush the competition and allow you to perform this action. You can develop oil fields and collect oil, invest in oil-replacing technologies, sponsor press campaigns, become pirates, and manipulate public opinion and oil prices.

After a while, the oil, represented by barrels that you pick from a bag when you develop new oil fields, will run out. It's peak oil, but it's also the end of the game. Players make the sum of the technologies in which they have invested and promoted.

The one who has participated best in the creation of the future (and thus acquired the best reputation for his company) wins the game.
