World Without Oil clued me in to the realities of fossil fuel scarcity and sent me down a rabbit hole (catalyzed by the Ron Paul campaign) that lead me to understand macro-economics in the tradition of those who claim to understand quantum physics. A game inspired me to do a graduate degree´s worth of research, then lose a bunch of money in the markets by way of understanding, then do another graduate degree´s worth of research into alternative energy to come up with a viable (and game-like) solution to the global financial and energy crisis. More on that later. The point is, I´m just someone who surfs the internet a lot, and if World Without Oil could inspire me to invent a solution to near-term problems, then Superstruct might as well inspire the lot of us to solve the much more interesting and challenging problems of the longer term.
