GoVenture World takes the MMO to business school

After you’ve put in a long day in your cubicle working for The Man, why not come home, kick off your shoes, and unwind by playing… an intensely detailed business simulator MMO? Hey, it takes all types, especially the types that feel like they need some virtual success to compensate for real-life stagnation.

Meet GoVenture World. This is an online business MMO in which players run their own startup companies and try to make it big in a simulated global economy. While the time frame and systems are streamlined from their real world complex counterparts, GoVenture World claims to offer an authentic business experience that includes supply, demand, stocks, legal issues, shipping, and on-the-job training. There is also a mobile app tie-in that allows the game to function as a pseudo-augmented reality title.

Also, we want to hear if anyone takes up GoVenture on this suggestion: “The experience is so real, so authentic, that you can add your in-game achievements to your real resume to help you get a job, or further your career, or launch your own startup.”

There is a lot of options and plenty to wrap your head around here, so get a high-level overview of GoVenture World in the video guide after the break.
