Gaming the  Industrial Revolution

Industrial R[e]volution is a management puzzle game that aims to educate on and explore the causes of the industrial revolution and its impact on England and Wales. The causes of the Industrial Revolution were varied and complex, and this game seeks to be a tool for teachers to help their students navigate this causal web. The United Kingdom was transformed from an agricultural society into an industrial powerhouse at the centre of the global economy, ultimately being able to escape the Malthusian Trap. Can you?


Industrial R[e]volution was created by a small but dedicated team of teachers, reseachers, games developers and students. For many of us this has been a project of passion, and have learnt a great deal from our experience with creating this game. Click below to learn more about the fanastic people behind this game.
